This summer, I concocted yet another version of the oh-so-versitile classic banana bread. This one is particularly special due to it's amazing chocolaty flavour, as well as its striking good looks - and it's healthy too!
This banana bread deserved a special name, and after some deliberation with my partner (Fortune Fudge Swirl Banana Bread? Magic Marble Chocolate Banana Bread?) we came up with Chocolate Mandelbrot Banana Bread. This was a name surely worthy of this gorgeous fractaly loaf!
Upon further research, I learned that there is already a Mandelbrot Bread in existence. This other Mandelbrot bread is an "almond bread", and is more like the Italian twice-baked biscotti (actually called Cantuccini in native Tuscany/Italy). There is even a recipe for Chocolate-filled mandelbrot - which may also have a chocolaty Mandelbrot set running through it's center.
After all that, here's the official recipe for my latest concoction:
Chocolate Fractal Banana Bread.
