Please feel free to comment on my blog if you have had success or otherwise with any of the recipes. I would love to know.
175g plain flour
2 tspn baking powder
half tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
125g butter melted
150g caster sugar
2 large eggs
4 small, very ripe bananas, around 300g in weight, mashed
50g dark chocolate chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (this is an ingredient worthy of paying the extra for)
23 x 13 x 7 cm loaf tin, buttered and floured or with a paper insert
Preheat the oven to 170C. Put the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt into a large bowl and combine with a spoon. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter and sugar, beat until blended. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the mashed bananas. Then with your spoon, stir in the sultanas, chocolate and vanilla extract. Add the flour folding well into the mixture. Scrape into the loaf tin and bake in the middle of the oven for around 1 hour. When it's cooked and skewer should come out clean. Leave in the tin to cool.
