Anyway, I made this Chocolate Banana Bread, oh a little while ago. I think it may have been made for one of the times when we travelled down South, but I can't remember for sure. What I do know for sure though is that I have not shared it with you. So here it is - super moist.
Well officially no more baking for me for the next couple of weeks as all the cookware has been packed, other than a small pot. a frying pan, a couple of plates. glasses, mugs and utensils to get us through the next few days.
Oh I am getting excited about the move, but also a little nervous as the weather is due to turn harsh and we still have to get all our stuff shifted from Scotland (across England) to Wales and hopefully all fairly in tact! I do hope the weather is gentle on us It hasn't been so far with the leaking roof, so I don't know why I am wishing for it to be gentle to us. Knowing our luck, it will be snowing heavy the day we come to officially move and the removal firm may postpone it - hopefully not. Let us see.
Chocolate Banana Cake
Serves 6 - 8
2 - 3 ripe bananas, mashed
170g golden brown caster sugar
185g self-raising flour, sifted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk
100g dark chocolate chips or dark chococlate, chopped into small pieces
80g walnuts, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 8 x 4 loaf tin and line the base with baking paper.
Put the mashed banana and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Add the flour, eggs, oil and milk and gently stir until well combined. Stir in the chocolate and walnuts.
Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes to an hour or until a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.
