1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup water (needed or the cocoa will dry out the bread)
1/2 cup (room temperature butter)
3-4 ripe bananas mashed well (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I don't use this as I get sick from it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place oven rack to middle position. spray the bottom and sides of a loaf pan with a non stick spray
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, water, butter, and vanilla.
With a wooden spoon, add the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until batter is thick.
Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake about 60 to 65 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool, then remove from the pan.
