What You'll Need:
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
- 2/3 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted (optional; see note)
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, confectioners' sugar, and coffee granules; add butter and vanilla. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat until blended. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.
Press dough into an ungreased 9-inch square pan; prick dough with a fork.

We had a little fun in the Test Kitchen and turned your favorite banana bread upside-down! Our Upside-Down Banana Bread is great as-is or served with some vanilla ice cream. Just be warned, no matter how you decide to eat it, it'll be hard to stop at just one piece!
