Banana and chocolate loaf cake

14 04 2013

I took this into work for a fundraiser this week and it went down well, a couple of people asked for the recipe so here goes 🙂

This is a great way to use up those bananas that are a tad overripe, just past edible!


  • 2 bananas
  • 2oz Butter (I use tub Stork because it’s already soft!)
  • 5oz Caster Sugar
  • 8oz Self-Raising Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100g Milk Chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C
  • Mash up the bananas in a small bowl
  • In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar
  • Beat in 2 eggs (I use an electric whisk for this)
  • Sieve in the flour and salt and fold in
  • Add the bananas and mix well
  • Break a bar of chocolate into small pieces and mix these in
  • Grease and line a 1 1/2lb loaf tin. That or buy loaf tin paper liners, I have some that are slightly siliconised and give such a great finish! My friends thought the last I was made was bought because of this!
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for an hour. One oven I used to use used to burn around the edges so I covered it with foil partway through, so keep an eye on it.
  • When an hours up, test with a knife and if it comes out clean, put it on a wire rack to cool, else pop it in for a little longer
