Old Bananas

Chocolate Banana Cake

Chocolate Banana cake - perfect for after a blustery walk and for using up any old bananas.

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 175g Muscovado sugar
  • 175g self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 50 ml milk
  • Small bag of choc chips (approx 100g)

  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4 (180 Degrees C)
  • Grease a loaf tin / line with baking paper
  • Mash up the bananas and mix with the sugar in a bowl
  • Beat the egg
  • Add in the egg, flour, milk and oil. Mix well
  • Fold in all the chocolate chips
  • Pour into the loaf tin.
  • Wham in the oven for about 50 - 60 mins. Check with a prong to see if cooked in the centre. Mine was still a bit uncooked so I left it in for a total of about 70 mins.
  • Turn out onto a wire rack to cool

Enjoy whilst the wind howls and the leaves start to fall.

I have not brought bananas in ages as they are $16.99kg way to expensive to have old ones.

Gosh it is!! About £11! I buy whole bunches of bananas for just over £1.

Thank you for the interesting fact, opened my eyes - reading about crop prices now......

Just read about somebody substitute the banana for papaya?
