Chocolate banana loaf

Chocolate banana loaf Posted by Picasa

Have been looking at the recipe for this on my fridge for quite a while. Decided to try it out today.

This turned out quite well, no burnt tops and uncooked insides :) I was quite pleased...hehehe! I made mine almost entirely with organic ingredients too.

Here is the recipe. It is rather quick and simple.

1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 large ripe bananas)
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1/4 cup extra light olive oil
1/4 cup milk
2/3 cup self-raising flour
2/3 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
3/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted walnuts
1/4 cup finely chopped dark eating chocolate

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease 14 cm x 21cm loaf pan, line base and long sides with baking paper.

Combine banana and sugar in large bowl, stir in egg, oil and milk.

Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.

Spread mixture into prepared pan and bake uncovered in oven for about 1 hour. Stand bread in pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto wire rack to cool for 5 minutes.
