Chocolate Banana Loaf is the best way to use up some rather ripe bananas. When the bananas are super ripe, they add an extra sweetness to the loaf.
With lots of chocolate left over from Christmas, why not melt it and drizzle over the top for an extra indulgent treat.
This quick and easy loaf is very moist and great for a lunch box treat or with an afternoon cuppa tea!
8oz self-raising flour
3 tbsp cocoa
4oz caster sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
4 tbsp milk
4 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 small ripe bananas
20g melted milk chocolate
In a mixing bowl add the flour, cocoa, sugar, oil, milk, eggs, golden syrup and vanilla and beat for about 2 minutes
Add 3 small ripe bananas in to the mixture
Mix well – you may see small lumps of banana but is nice in the loaf. If you don’t like the small lumps then mash the bananas before adding to the mixture
Pour into a greased or lined loaf tin and bake at 180c for about 45-50 minutes
Swirl in the melted chocolate and allow to cool. Slice and enjoy
