Soft bread with a hint of banana fragrance, paired with moist and chocolaty filling, one word, AWESOME!
Yield: 1 bread loaf
Recipe: revised from // 天然、無添加的手作麵包

* notes *
1/ I have already decrease the use of sugar in the banana dough recipe. I think it tastes just right for sweetness (for Chinese). If you really want to lessen the consumption of the sugar, try take out some more sugar in the chocolate filling recipe.

2/ Always use ripe banana!

    :Banana dough:

    In a large bowl, combine everything except butter. Beat until well blended using a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment.

    Add in butter and knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Shape into a ball. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 60 minutes (2.5~3 times larger in size).

    After rising, roll the dough into a ball. Let rest for 25 minutes.

    Let rise for 50 minutes or until 1.5~2 times larger in size. Brush egg wash on the top.

    Bake 200C/392F for 40 minutes. You may need to leave a small gap in the oven door to prevent over baking the top. (I opened the door in last 10 minutes, the top is browned, but did not burn)
