The bake that lockdown made famous! This delicious banana bread is an absolute classic. Within an hour you have this loaf ready to eat with a nice cup of tea. I’ve included an option to add chocolate chips too makes for an added richness. But please leave these out if you prefer.

Method

This is such an easy recipe with very basic ingredients but goodness me its delicious. You’ll need a 2lb loaf tin for this recipe.

Start off by putting the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and sugars into a mixing bowl. Mix this on slow just to combine the dry ingredients together evenly.

Mush your bananas up with a fork. You don’t want huge pieces, just press with a fork until it is small chunks.

Melt your butter in the microwave. Add this to the flour mixture along with the eggs, vegetable oil and mushed bananas. Mix this all together now until evenly combined.

Optional – Coat your chocolate chips in a spoon of flour and then mix into the batter. I used dark chocolate chips but milk would be yum too.

Line a 2 lb loaf tin with baking paper and put the mixture in the tin. Cook in a preheated oven at 160 fan for around 40-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean and cooked.

Slice asap and enjoy with a cup of tea.

    Understand the principle coating the choc chips in flour , but it doesn’t really adhere to dry chocolate and so all of my sunk to bottom. Might try with sultanas next. Do you have any other suggestions to stop them sinking

    1. A few suggestions, try using smaller chocolate chips. If you used large chips the weight would cause these to sink more. Also, you could just soften your butter instead of melting it. This will keep your batter thicker and hopefully keeping your chocolate chips more stable.
