Chocolate Banana Loaf

 The usual few bananas left going brown, but wanted a different loaf to make. This recipe comes from ´The Baker’s Daughter’ by Louise Johncox, a recipe book which also tells stories about the family bakery.

Preheat oven 180C/gas4. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin.

You need: 100g dark chocolate, 110g margarine, 125g caster sugar, 2 beaten eggs, 125g sr flour, 11/2tbspn cocoa, 1 level tspn baking powder and 2 medium bananas mashed, chocolate to melt for the top (opt)

Melt chocolate in microwave or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water,

Cream margarine and sugar. Add beaten eggs gradually.

Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder together and add to the mixture. Beat together with a wooden spoon.

Pour into the tin and bake for 40-50mins. Let cake cool in the tin for 10 mins then turn onto a wire rack.

I’ve melted milk chocolate and swirled it over the top. 

It’s a very moist cake and really delicious.
