This has to be one of the BEST Banana bread recipes I have ever made! This banana bread is incredibly moist, perfectly sweet and swirled with chocolate. It has a wonderful nutty toffee flavor from the browned butter and is super moist thanks to the sour cream! I also added in four bananas to keep the batter extra soft.

How to make marbled chocolate banana bread

  • Start by making your browned butter. Add butter to a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until light brown / caramel in color. 5-10 minutes.
  • Pour the browned butter into a large bowl along with the sugar and vanilla, mix until combined.
  • Fold in the eggs one at a time then add in the bananas and sour cream.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  • Scoop 1 cup of the batter into the bowl you used for dry ingredients. Add in cocoa powder and mix to combine.
  • Pour both batters into the prepared pan alternating between chocolate and regular. Use a butter knife to swirl.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 20 minutes before removing it from the loaf pan to cool completely.

What makes this Banana Bread super moist:

Brown Sugar: In place of granulated sugar I used brown sugar to add extra moisture to the bread.

Sour Cream: Adds a nice richness, tang and tons of moisture!

Extra Bananas: Instead of 2 or 3 bananas I add in 4 mashed bananas. They add so much moisture to the batter and extra sweetness!
