Banana Bread Recipe

So, I like Bananas, and I love Chocolate.  I always end up having many Bananas left in the fruit bowl, slowly turning a darker shade of brown by the day, so decided to use them up in the best way possible. Being a "chocoholic" I always add quite a lot of chocolate, but you could always mix it up by adding nuts or apricots perhaps? Let me know if you think of something better to go with it.. oooh peanut butter! 


200g plain flour
  • 125g caster sugar ( I use brown sugar for a more sweet taste)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 250g mashed bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 115g unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 125g plain chocolate chips ( I never measure this as I just throw them in) 


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20x30cm loaf tin. I Grease the tine and tin it with baking parchment so that the cake doesn't stick.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine bananas, egg, melted butter and milk.
  4. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until blended. Be careful not to over mix.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips. (Eat some of the chocolate chips to check they taste okay)
  6. Pour batter into prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. The cake is done when a skewer inserted into centre of cake comes out clean. (It will have some melted chocolate, but no crumbs).
  7.  Leave to cool, I tend to drizzle some melted chocolate over the top for the effect but it looks just as good without. 
  8. Ignore part of number 7, you don't HAVE to leave it to cool, eat it whenever; it tastes amazing warm!

Happy Baking!!
