Chocolate, Banana and Peanut Butter Loaf


Who doesn’t love this combination…?! This is another really easy recipe, only one mixing bowl required! How I like it…less washing up – result!

This is great to do when you have left over bananas that need using up, and most of the other ingredients you’ll most likely already have in your cupboard.




2 large eggs

140g unsalted butter, room temperature

140g caster sugar

125g self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

25g cocoa powder

2tblsp peanut butter

3 ripe bananas



  • Preheat oven to 170C Fan/190C conventional.
  • Grease and line a baking loaf tin – mine is 9.5 x 5 inch. ( See below for how I line my tin – I find this way really easy to just lift the loaf out of the tin once cooled).
  • Cream butter and sugar together until creamy and light. It’s worth taking the time to do this as it makes for a nicer result.
  • Add the eggs and give a quick whizz with the mixer just to combine quickly.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and cocoa. Mix until combined. Either on a slow speed of the mixer or folding in with a large metal spoon.
  • Add in the peanut butter and chunks of banana. Mix until combined.















  • Pour cake mix into the baking tin.
  • Place the third banana on top – I tend to cut it in half lengthways

  • Bake for approx. 45-50 minutes – or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool in the tin.
