Banana Chocolate Loaf

What could be better than a combination of chocolate and banana, I don’t know why I never thought of trying something like this myself.  This loaf is delicious and moist.  I have also made it as a cake adjusting the cooking times slightly and iced it with butter icing for a delightful treat.




100g butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1½ cups flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
2 bananas, mashed
½ cup chocolate chips
1 tsp baking soda

1 cup warm milk
Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and line a 24cm loaf tin.
Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
Add egg and beat well then stir in banana
Add sifted flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
Combine with wet mixture
Add the baking soda dissolved in warm milk.
Mix together then pour into prepared tin.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until cooked.
Cool for 10 minutes in the tin before turning out.
