Chocolate Chip Banana Cake Recipe

This is one of my favourite go to recipes and one that my sister in law gave me a few years ago, I make it so much I now know the recipe off by heart.  If you are anything like us we always have a couple of spotty brown bananas left over at the end of the week, these are the perfect ingredients for this simple banana cake recipe.

To make this lovely moist *shudder at that word* spongy cake, you will need to following few ingredients –

8oz Self Raising Flour

6oz Sugar

4oz Butter

2 Eggs

2  Ripe Bananas

*Chocolate Chips and Vanilla Essence optional

First of all put the butter and sugar in a bowl and cream it by giving it a good old mix until the sugar and butter are creamed and light and fluffy.

Next you need to crack the eggs into the mixture, one by one, giving the mixture a good stir each time. If it looks like it’s starting to curdle add a little bit of flour and mix it in.

Next you need to peel the bananas, break them up into a little bowl and mush them with a fork until they look like the picture below

Add the mushed bananas to the butter, sugar and egg mixture. At this stage you can add anything else you’d like, I normally add 50 grams of milk chocolate chips but you can add anything you like really, fudge pieces are also one of my faves!

Pop in the oven on the middle shelf at 180 degrees (Gas Mark 4) for 40 minutes, then turn down to 150 degrees (Gas Mark 2) for a further 30 mins.

Once the time is up remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack… after it’s cooled down pop the kettle on and enjoy with a nice cup of tea
