Chocolate Marble Banana Bread

Having found banana's on special for 49 cents a pound recently I have ended up with lots of bananas for baking so today I made a Chocolate Marble Banana Bread, my family really enjoyed.
Here is how I made it...
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
1/2 cup margarine
2 eggs
4 mashed bananas
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder

In your mixing bowl place sugar and margarine mix together add banana, vanilla and eggs. Beat together and then add milk, baking soda and flour. Mix until thick dough forms.
Remove one cup of batter and to it add the cocoa powder.

Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray and divide the dough between them. Add spoonfuls of your chocolate mix to the top and use a knife to swirl the chocolate into the batter. Bake at 375 for 50-60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Cool in pans 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
Tea time, serve with your favorite tea. I had "dish water" Earl Grey with mine as you can see a nice lightly steeped tea to enjoy with a dense and delicious marbled banana bread.
