Serves 16
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 2/3 cups (about 3) mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp half-and-half
  • 2 oz semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a bowl, combine sugar and butter and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add banana, milk, sour cream and egg whites.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to banana mixture and stir until just blended. Spoon batter into loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in pan 10 minutes.

Place half-and-half and chocolate in a bowl and place over a pot of simmering water and stir until melted. Cool slightly and drizzle over bread.
