Candice Brown’s Banana, chocolate, coconut loaf.

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.
