I’ve taken a classic and added a twist to present you with today’s bake. I’ll be sharing my recipe for a banana chocolate chip bread.
If like me, you leave the banana’s until they are speckled or almost black, don’t throw them away! Use them for this banana bread – trust me, it’s worth it!
If you’ve ever had banana and chocolate as a combination, you’ll know it works so well. In each bite you get the banana and chocolate… What’s not to love?
I love making banana bread as it reminds me of baking with my mom when I was younger, so adding a little twist makes it a little different to a more traditional banana bread.
Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
175g Granulated sugar.
2 Large ripe bananas.
225g plain flour.
1 tsp Baking powder.
2 tbsp Whole milk.
100g Milk chocolate chips.
Before you get started, you’ll want to do some prep work. Start by weighing up your ingredients, preheating your oven to 180˚c/350˚f, line your loaf tin with a piece of parchment paper and get any other equipment you may need like a stand mixer or mixing bowl.
For this cake recipe today, I’ll be using the all in one method. This is simply where you place all of the ingredients into the bowl and mix them until fully incorporated.
Into your mixing bowl, place the butter, granulated sugar, eggs, bananas, flour and baking powder. Then you can go ahead and mix these all together until they are fully combined and the cake batter is clean (you can’t see a trace of a single ingredient).
Now is the perfect time to add the milk (if needed) to help with the consistency of the cake batter, mix until the milk is fully incorporated.
Go ahead and give the bowl a good scraping down, just to incorporate any bits thats may not have been fully worked in from earlier on.
Then you can add in all of your chocolate chips and just fold them in using a silicon spatula until they are equally distributed within the cake.
Once everything is mixed in, you can transfer your cake batter into your lined loaf tin and then place it into your preheated oven and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted into the centre.
While your cake is baking in the oven, it’s the perfect time to do your washing up and get tidy.
Once your cake is out of the oven, then allow it to cool completely in the loaf tin before you attempt to remove it.
Now that everything is fully cooled down, you can run a knife down the sides of the banana bread (to help loosen the cake from the tin)and remove it from the cake tin.
Take a knife and cut it up into slices and enjoy on its own or with a hot drink like tea or coffee.
That’s all for today guys, I hope you enjoyed. If you did, don’t forget to share this recipe with your family and friends and enjoy it.
