    Aaliyah's&Aaron'sMum's Note:

    This is a lovely, moist cake.. ridiculously easy to make!! Must-try for 1st time bakers.. Suggestions: can replace dark chocolate with nuts. Also you could substitute the raisins with sultanas soaked in about 5 tbsp rum or orange juice.. I add sultanas since I am not a big fan of cooked raisins!

    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      You will need a 2 lb loaf tin, lightly buttered or lined with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 170ºC/gas mark 3.
    3. 3
      First of all, in a large bowl, sift the plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
    4. 4
      Now in another large bowl, mix the melted butter and sugar and beat until well blended.
    5. 5
      Beat in the eggs one at a time followed by the mashed bananas.
    6. 6
      Now using a wooden spoon stir in the chopped chocolate, raisins and vanilla extract.
    7. 7
      Sieve in the sifted flour mixture (double sifting is to give it a good airing), a third at a time, folding in carefully after each addition.
    8. 8
      Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour-ish (test to see if its done when an inserted toothpick or a thin skewer comes out clean).
    9. 9
      Remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning it out on to a wire rack.
    10. 10
      Then let it get completely cold before serving or transferring it to a cake tin.

      Love, love, love this bread! The addition of chocolate chunks to this make the flavor - well I don't know how to word it but you get a fleck of the chocolate flavor at times and it just makes everything else come together. I did not add raisins this time and just stayed with the bananas and chocolate chunks. Fabulous recipe and one I'll be making again! Tagged during the Flour Challenge Photo Forum 4/08.
