This was one of the first recipes that I cracked when doing this blog, so I thought why not bring back an old favourite with a new twist! Don’t worry if all of the those delicious milk chocolate chips sink to the bottom of the loaf, mine did and it still tasted amazing! Lets-a-go!
140g Dairy Free Butter, softened
140g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
140g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
2 Bananas, very ripe if possible
100g Milk Chocolate Chips
Cake Release Spray or Oil Spray
Wooden Spoon/Electric Hand Whisk
Measure out your ingredients and preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Also, grease and line your pan, I didn’t line the bottom of my pan and it stuck to it, even though I added a load of spray oil to it, and you just don’t want to lose any of that amazing loaf.
Grab your mixing bowl and tip the sugar and butter into it. Cream them together thoroughly with a wooden spoon or electric hand whisk until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and, again, beat together. This may take a while, but it is better to do it now so that you don’t have little bits of butter in your mixture.
Add your flour a little at a time to your mixture folding it in to your buttery egg mixture until fully combined.
Mash up your bananas, and add to the mixture until fully combined, and then add in your chocolate chips and fold in until fully combined for a final time.
Tip your mixture into your bread tin, using your spatula to make sure as much of the mixture as possible goes in your bread tin, and bake for 50 – 55 minutes. You can check if these are cooked using different ways, either by: inserting a teaspoon handle/cake tester/skewer and see if it comes out clean; touch it and it bounces back up; or finally, they are golden-brown on top.
Leave the bread tin to cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack and then remove the banana loaf onto the cooling rack, leaving it to cool completely.
