Banana and Chocolate Bread
This is such a satisfying recipe. It tastes delicious but also I usually have all the ingredients to hand.
I freeze bananas when they get too ripe and we can't keep up with their consumption. This recipe uses frozen bananas and it works magnificently.
200g coconut sugar or soft brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 very ripe bananas or frozen ones
100g dark chocolate chopped small
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
50g Greek Yoghurt
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 tsp mixed spice
. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
. Line a 900g loaf tin with baking parchment.
. Using an electric beater cream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
. Slowly add the eggs, beating well with each addition.
. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Fold until well incorporated.
. Spoon in to the prepared loaf tin
. Bake for 50-60 minutes until well risen and springy to the touch
. Delicious eaten with a cuppa or toasted for breakfast!
