After being absent from the baking scene for about a month, a made a bunch of bakes for Christmas then got the flu and i couldn’t be arsed, i had no motivation. I decided last night to use up our old bananas and make this loaf from Candice’s cook book Comfort. Its really yummy although i will say the banana on top is overkill, i actually picked it off as it did nothing for me.
What you will need is:
2 over ripe bananas
70g plain flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder & bicarb
15g cocoa powder (i use Green and Blacks)
50g unsalted butter
75g dark brown sugar
1 large egg
50g desicated coconut
75g dark chocolate (the recipe called for minimum 70% cocoa but i refuse to pay for it so i used Bournville)
Basically all you need to do is mash up the bananas then add everything else.
You can add a sliced banana to the top when you’re about to bake it but i didn’t like it so i wouldn’t do it again.
