Something for all of you lovely readers to bake…

Hello everyone! Yes, that’s right! I have come here with a recipe…

Banana and Chocolate Chip Loaf!

I found it in a book (* cough cough* Appleby Farm) and I tried it out and decided to share it with you guys!


2 large, ripe bananas
225g self-raising flour
170g caster sugar
115g butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
85g chocolate chips, or more if you have a sweet tooth
1 tablespoon Demerara sugar, or to substitute, light brown sugar

Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin and preheat the oven to 160 celcius ( 320 degrees Fahrenheit/ gas mark 3).

Into a large bowl, sieve the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the other ingredients to the bowl and mix (either with a wooden spoon or an electric hand mixer) just until smooth. I recommend peeling the bananas first, mash it up in a separate bowl and add to the mix, same thing with the eggs, but not the mashing part.

Here is a picture that I managed to take while it was mixing:


Put into the loaf tin, level the surface and sprinkle the brown sugar, or Demerara sugar.


Bake for 50-60 minutes, then test with a cake tester or skewer and poke the centre of the cake, it shouldn’t stick to it. The cake may need 5-10 minutes more; ovens can vary!

Cool in the tin for a few minutes and then on a rack. Serve with tea and enjoy!


Sooo, hope you enjoyed it you decided to make it and let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading,
