Banana bread

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Another great recipe from Australian Women’s Weeklychoc banana bread. It’s amazing how many people eat banana cake for breakfast and kid themselves into believing it’s healthy by calling it “banana bread”. Marketing at its best! For the purpose helping people find this post on Google, I’ve called it “banana bread”, but I really do believe it’s cake.

In this recipe, I used hazelnuts instead of walnuts, and cooking chocolate instead of eating chocolate (only because it was raining outside and I couldn’t be bothered walking to the shops). You’re always better off using good quality eating chocolate when it comes to baking. I didn’t have wholemeal SRF in the pantry, so I just used plain flour instead and threw in some bi-carb and baking powder. It seemed to work!

For aesthetics, I dusted the top of the cake with icing sugar and served it with butter, but you can give that a miss if you’re watching your waistline. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the recipe for chocolate banana bread from Women’s Weekly.
