  • 140 g butter softened plus a little extra to grease your tin
  • 140 g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 140 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed. The browner the better!
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 50 g dark chocolate broken into small chunks

To Serve - Optional

  • Tahini
  • Runny local honey


  • Preheat oven to 180C/Gas 4
  • Butter a loaf tin and line the sides and base with baking parchment or use a loaf tin liner.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in one egg and a tablespoon of flour and mix well then do the same with the other. The flours stops the mixture curdling.
