Farmhouse Chocolate banana loaf

I've been asked a number of times on social media and by friends what recipe I use to make my favourite chocolate banana cake, so I thought I would share it on here! It's a Green & Black's recipe and I've always had good results with it. It's not hard to make either, which is a bonus for me as I'm not the most competent or confident baker!

You will need ~

225g Self-raising flour
100g Butter at room temperature
175g Caster sugar
Pinch of salt
2 Large free-range eggs, beaten
2 Very ripe bananas
3 Tablespoons of milk
100g Dark (70% 0r 85% cocoa solids) chocolate, chopped into very small pieces (I personally have some of my chocolate in bigger chunks too, but it works with both very small pieces or slightly bigger chunks.)

 Method ~

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
  • Line a 23 x 13cm loaf tin
  • Sift the flour and salt
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, this is easier done in a food processor. Add the eggs, milk and bananas and mix together thoroughly. Then add the flour and salt but stop mixing as soon as the ingredients come together.
  • Fold half of the chopped chocolate in to the mixture. Use a spoon for this NOT a food processor.
  • Pour the mixture in to the lined loaf tin. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate on top of the mixture, pushing the pieces in slightly.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in to the middle comes out clean.

Then sit back and enjoy a slice with a cup of tea!

I hope you enjoy making and eating this as much as I do, it's a firm favourite in our house!
