I’m sharing another of my most-baked cake recipes today. Delicious Banana and Chocolate Chip Loaf cake. This is a firm favourite in my household and really easy to make. It’s good just on its own but even better with rather large chunks of Chocolate!
You Will Need:
- 2 large eggs. Beaten
- 250g SF flour
- 140g castor sugar
- tsp baking powder
- 2 ripe bananas Mashed
Firstly, set the oven to 180c, butter and line a 2 1b loaf tin with baking parchment. Using a stand mixer, yes, you guessed it, I’m using my Kitchenaid. Cream together the butter and sugar until light in colour and fluffy. Add the beaten eggs a little at a time along with some of the flour so as not to curdle the mixture. Finally, fold in the remaining flour and baking powder along with the chocolate and mashed bananas. I use Dairy Milk and chop it into large chunks. If you prefer to use a dark high cocoa content chocolate that works just as well or a mix of both!
Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake for around 30 minutes. Mine usually takes a little longer, if yours looks like it might need longer cover the top loosely with foil so as not to darken the top too much.
Once baked, allow to cool. Even better, have a warm slice… go on it’s got banana in it. kind of takes the edge of the guilt. If you’re a ‘breakfaster’ this makes a lovely morning treat with your coffee.
