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.
- 2 large eggs
- 250g self-raising flour
- 140g castor sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 ripe bananas Mashed
- Splash of milk
Firstly, set the oven to 180c.
Next, grease and line a 21b loaf tin with baking parchment.
Peel and lightly mash the two bananas.
This is an “all in” recipe so place all the measured ingredients, including the two eggs into a large mixing bowl and using a hand mixer beat until it’s all blended together. if you’re beating by hand make sure you beat the eggs in a separate bowl before adding to the rest of the mixture.
Fold in the mashed banana and add a little milk to loosen the mixture up slightly. If you’re adding chocolate chips or chunks do so now. My preference is dark 70% chocolate but if you prefer, go ahead and use any chocolate of your choice. Snap off uneven sized pieced and drop them into the mixture before giving it a quick stir to blend.
Finally, spoon the mixture into your prepared tin and smooth the top.
Bake for around 30 minutes…
Mine usually takes a little longer, if yours does too… Cover the top loosely with foil. This will prevent the top from catching and darkening too much. Keep checking every five minutes or so until you’re happy it’s cooked through. You can test it by pushing in a cocktail stick and if comes out clean, it’s done. If there’s mixture clinging to it then pop it back in the oven for a little longer.
Once baked, allow to cool, or even better… Treat yourself to a warm slice!
