I felt a bit peckish the other day and decided I needed cake in my life so I made this Tropical Chocolate Banana Bread. As with 99% of my recipes this is a simple one bowl cake, no faffing about, less washing up (although the dishwasher does that for me now!) and is ready in 40mins from start to finish!
I’ve made this a few times now and the thing about bananas is that they come in all shapes and sizes, therefore you may need to add a few spoons of water to your mix to get a thick dropping consistency. The riper the banana, the better but again, I’ve been impatient and made just as successful a loaf with two large less ripe bananas.
One bowl, mashed bananas and away you go! Such a simple recipe, ready from start to finish in under 40mins
- 2 large ripe bananas or 4 small
- 50 g caster sugar
- 50 g dessicated coconut
- 2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
- 150 g gluten free self raising flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mash your bananas in a large bowl
Add remaining ingredients and beat with a wooden spoon to combine.
If mixture does not drop from spoon add a little water to loosen it.
Spoon mixture into a loaf tin, I use an odd sized tin that I got from Amazon, but its super non stick and works everytime, failing this use a 1lb tin.
