Ingredients

For the Bread:

1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled (or 1/2 cup vegetable oil), plus more for the pan

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2 large eggs

1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon grated orange zest (optional)

1 cup mashed banana

For the Glaze:

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Make the banana bread: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter one 9-by-5-inch loaf pan or three 6-by-3-inch mini loaf pans.
  2. Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add the chocolate chips.
  3. Whisk the eggs, melted butter, yogurt, vanilla and orange zest (if using) in a medium bowl. Stir in the mashed banana. Fold the banana mixture into the flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Spread the batter in the prepared pan(s). Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes for a standard loaf or 35 to 40 minutes for mini loaves. Cool 30 minutes in the pan(s) on a rack, then turn out onto the rack to cool completely.
  5. Make the glaze: Whisk the confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, milk, vanilla and salt in a bowl. Pour over the cooled banana bread and let set, 15 to 20 minutes.
