Servings: One loaf

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened (half a stick)
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons coffee or 3 Tablespoons water plus 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee
1/3 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, cocoa nibs or combination
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk or sift if the cocoa is lumpy.

In a large bowl combine sugar and butter; beating with a mixer at medium speed until well creamed, at least two minutes. Add eggs and beat well. Add banana, vanilla, and coffee; beat on low speed until blended. Add flour mixture; combine just until moist. Stir in walnuts; spoon batter into a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack before attempting to slice or bread will crumble.
