Chocolate Banana Bread

This is one of the creations I left go way too long. 
I know I found my inspiration from Pinterest,
but I can't remember the changes I made to it.
I know I used sour cream instead of yogurt.
And my topping is just a little different.
But you can add any kind of topping you want to sweet bread.  
I'm not a big fan of banana bread.
But I do have to say, this one was very good.
My work crew loved it.
I will just give you the link so you can make it yourself.

Blueberry/banana Breakfast Cake

Are you one that likes something a little sweet with your coffee?
I'm a cookie dunker.
And my favorite cookie to dunk in coffee is oatmeal.

I had a partial container of blueberries that needed to be used quickly.
So I searched for a recipe using blueberries.
My inspiration came from this blog: Alexandra's Kitchen

I will list the changes I made to accommodate my ingredients on hand.
Or you can just use Alexandra's recipe.

I only had about 1 c. of blueberries so I added one mashed banana. I mashed the banana and added just a splash of lemon juice, and stirred in the blueberries.
I also didn't have any fresh lemon peel, so I used the dried California lemon peel found in the spice section at the grocery store. 
Other than the few changes I made everything is exact.
Oh and, I also sprinkled the amount of sugar on top to my liking. I do believe it was more than 1 TBS.
This is a very good moist cake.
