Banana Bread with Chocolate Glaze

Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 2/3 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
2 large eggs
2 cups all purpose flour (I used King Arthur)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Cooking spray
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the sugar and butter beating at medium speed until fluffy. On low-speed, add the banana, milk, greek yogurt and eggs mixing until combined.
3
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Keeping the mixer on low-speed and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Beat just until blended. Add the pecans and stir briefly.
4
Pour the batter into a 9×5 inch metal loaf pan coated with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
5
Place the heavy cream and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at high for 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring every 20 seconds. Cool slightly and spoon over bread.
