The Best Banana Bread ( I tried Chrissy Teigen’s Recipe)

In my search for making The Best Banana Bread Recipe and talking to my daughter about it, she told me of one of the most mentioned recipes on the internet, Chrissy Teigen’s famous Banana Bread Recipe. So I decided to give it a try. I wanted to check for myself what was all the noise about this recipe. Her banana bread is made with a combination of very simple ingredients which include one of my favorites, Chocolate! So Why not try it!

The Best Banana Bread

The Best Banana Bread

This Banana Bread is without a doubt one of the best I’ve ever tried. I love the combination of banana and coconut which gives this recipe a Caribbean touch I should say.

I love to see celebrities cooking, have you seen Selena Gomez’s new cooking show? It is amazing. I feel more connected with them when I see them in the kitchen. One of my favorites is Chrissy Teigen which by the way is a professional chef (she accomplishes a culinary program at the French Culinary Institute) and she is the author of the cooking book Cravings: Hungry For More where you can find this amazing recipe ( p.236).

Easy-Banana-Bread

One of the things I enjoyed about making this banana bread is how easy it was to make and how accessible the ingredients are. Unless you encounter the same issues Chrissy Teigen had at the time of making this recipe by not finding the most important ingredient (the bananas). You know, the whole thing about her famous tweet where she asked help from her followers to help her get the most important ingredient.

I think it’s amazing how she was able to mobilize her followers through social media. Of course, I don’t have the help (followers) that Chrissy Teigen has, so I decided to make sure I buy my yellow bananas on time and left them out on my kitchen counter for a couple of days to ripe (turn brown) resisting the temptation to eat them.

Ripe-Bananas

Now with the perfect sweet fruit on hand, I can start making The Best Banana Bread Ever!

So what happens if you are reading this and you want to make this recipe right now but don’t have ripe bananas on hand? I got you covered!

Tip to ripe bananas in the oven: Place the bananas (do not peel them)on a lined baking sheet. Turn the oven to 300 degrees and bake the bananas until their skin turn black(this might take 15-20 minutes). Take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Now you have instantly ripe bananas!

The first step is to preheat the oven to 350°F and grease up a bundt pan.

Then place those sweet very ripe bananas in a container and mash them.

Poured the batter into the Bundt pan and bake. Chrissy Teigen recommends baking the banana bread for an hour. However, It took an extra 15 minutes for mine to be done and perfect. The aroma in the house was unbelievable!

What I love about this banana bread recipe:

I enjoyed how moist the banana bread is. I loved the combination of the dark chocolate with the sweetness of the bananas.

What I learned making this recipe:

The first time I tried this recipe I  use a silicone baking mold. Unfortunately was not a success, the banana bread didn’t cook inside. It was a disaster ):  Based on this failure I recommend using a bundt pan or metal cake mold. This second time the banana bread came out amazing.
