Milk Chocolate Banana Bread

If you are looking for a recipe that incorporates chocolate and banana flavor and isn't too sweet with too much chocolate this one's for you.  Easily eaten cooled slightly out of the oven or topped with butter or softened cream cheese this is a nice breakfast bread.

I love breakfast breads because they are easily made and freezer acceptable. This recipe is an adaptation of my regular banana bread/muffin recipe.  I made a few adjustments by adding the cocoa and adding more milk.  Baking time varies but take note it may take as much as 45 to 55 minutes at 350 in your oven.  Test center of bread to make sure the toothpick comes out dry.

1/3 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup milk
