Makes 1 loaf
Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 350 deg F (180C)
8oz (225g) SR Flour
4oz (100g) butter
5oz (150g) golden granulated sugar
1lb (450g) bananas (the gooier the better, peeled and
½ teaspoon salt
100g Silver Spoon chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips together, in a food mixer or by hand in a bowl with an electric whisk. When it’s thoroughly mixed, add the chocolate chips. Pour into a 2lb loaf tin, I line it with a strip of baking parchment, and bake for between an hour and an hour and a half. The loaf is done when a skewer pushed into it comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
The chocolate chips are a real indulgence, I often use up ends of bags of assorted dried fruits, cherries, nuts in this recipe and you could add some mixed spice, no two cakes are ever the same! It keeps well too, if it’s allowed to!
