I’m a big fan of recipes which lend themselves to variations. I’ve posted on this theme before (see one recipe three ways: cookies and one recipe three ways: savoury crackers) but really using the same basic ingredients with just a few tweaks makes life easier; it’s fewer things to buy
This chocolate chip banana bread is simply a variation on the lemon banana bread but here’s the recipe anyway:
2 bananas, mashed
100g Sunflower oil
175g light muscovado sugar (although caster is fine)
225g Self raising flour (sieved)
1 tsp baking powder
100g bag of dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180C and line a loaf tin
Cream bananas, oil and sugar together. A bowl and a wooden spoon will do this fine but if I’m using my mixer I don’t even bother to mash the bananas first. Just start off at a low speed an build it up until everything is creamy.
Fold in the flour and baking powder and then fold in the chocolate chips and put in lined loaf tin.
Bake for 1 hour but check after 45 minutes. A skewer should come out clean.
Cool before slicing.
