Chocolate & Banana Loaf
2 ripe Bananas
150g Green & Blacks Cooking Chocolate(you can use any but I like this)
1 Teaspoon of ground ginger
200g butter margarine or cooking butter like Stork
175g Caster sugar
250g Self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
Grease a Loaf tin and put oven on Gas mark 4 to pre-heat.
Put chocolate,ginger & 25g of butter into bowl & melt in microwave or over a pan of hot water.
My Gran used to always put ginger in her bakes, I think she thought it was exotic.
Mash bananas up.If making this recipe with children you can get them to do this job, but you may want to add an extra banana to make up for what they'll eat.
In separate bowl add butter and sugar mix until creamy then add the eggs and banana mush.
Add to this the flour & baking power and whisk together until thick and creamy. Yummy.
Add 1/4 of mixture to the tin then swirl over the melted chocolate mixture, then add more banana mixture continue till all mixture has run out. This should make a swirly pattern when you cut the loaf.
If you can save some chocolate mixture till the end rather than lick the bowl clean, you could swirl it over the top of the loaf, but as you can see that didn't happen to my loaf.
Enjoy your weekend.
