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.
