Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine beaten eggs, oil, orange extract, orange juice and sour cream. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and mix in liquid ingredients. In small bowl, mash bananas with fork. Continue bananas with hand mixer until pureed and as smooth as possible. Add to batter; do not over-mix. Gently mix in melted chocolate and incorporate until evenly blended. NOTE: Start with six oz. And if you like darker flavor/color, add other oz. Pour into greased loaf pans. Bake 50-55 minutes, until pick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan, remove to cooling rack. Wrap in plastic when cool and serve the following day.
