Becky Bakes: Dairy Free Chocolate Banana Loaf.




This dairy free chocolate banana loaf cake may change your life. Or it could just use up the over-ripe bananas in your fruit bowl. Either way it is really, really, tasty and is an adaptation of my mum's canadian banana muffin recipe. It's a fairly easy method and easy to replicate at home!







To make this loaf you will need:


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups of caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup of dairy free butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbs cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
  • Dairy free dark chocolate (chips are most ideal for this recipe)






Method:


  • Mash the four ripe bananas and add sugar and (beaten) egg to the banana mixture
  • Melt the dairy free butter and add to the mixture, stirring thoroughly.
  • Add the baking soda, baking powder and self raising flour and stir the mixture thoroughly once more.
  • Fold the dairy free dark chocolate chips into the mixture.
  • Divide the mixture into two bowls, adding additional cocoa into one bowl and stir the mixture thoroughly again. 
  • Place the mixtures in  a pre-prepared loaf tin and cook at 190 degrees c for 45 minutes.
  • Add a tin foil cover to the top of the loaf in the oven after 25 minutes to prevent burning.


Such a simple, delicious recipe for the cold months! I hope you all have a go, it is so worth it..
