Boozy Double Chocolate Double Banana Bread

March 31, 2018

Author Notes: The inspiration for this creation all started with being gifted a bottle of whisky that I was determined to use in the kitchen. Bananas and whisky area natural pairing and being chocolate lover I starting thinking about how to incorporate chocolate too and voila ~ this dessert was born. This recipe is inspired by: http://frugalfeeding.com/2012/10/10/double-chocolate-whiskey-banana-bread/Chef Daniela
