Another banana recipe! This time with nuts and chocolate for a change. I love making banana bread as it's so simple to make and always tastes good. The bananas guarantee the moistness and you can add pretty much anything to it - fruit, nuts, honey, chocolate. If I've labelled my blog correctly, this is the 17th recipe with bananas that I've posted! I will have even more exciting banana posts as I have a very exciting, new cookbook which I will tell you about in due course. I'll let you in on a little secret - I actually buy bananas to ripen at home so I can bake with them. Please tell me I'm not the only one! :)
3 ripe bananas, mashed
170g caster sugar
185g self-raising flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk
100g dark chocolate chips
90g pecans, chopped (you can also use walnuts)
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Grease and line a loaf tin.
- Mix the mashed bananas and sugar in a large bowl until combined.
- Add the flour, eggs, oil and milk.
- Stir until combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts.
- Pour into the tin and bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre come out clean.
- Allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin before turning out to a wire rack to cool completely.
