Mary Berry Banana Bread - easy and delicious. A warming banana loaf recipe, made using the ripest bananas. This deliciously moist loaf cake, best served in thick slices, is one of Mary Berry's most popular recipes.
This is a great way to use up ripe bananas, including black-skinned ones. The riper they are, the better the flavour of this loaf. You can keep very ripe bananas in the freezer until you’re ready to bake.
Didn't make the icing or use chocolate chips, it was really good as a plain chocolate and banana cake. Think I'll add some walnuts next time and it needed less than an hour in the oven (probably because I used a square cake tin in absence of a loaf tin)
