Banana, Honey & Chocolate Bread Recipe
- Preheat oven to 160°C (fan forced). Grease and line a large loaf tin or two small loaf tins with baking paper.
- Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy in an electric beater. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract. Mash the bananas together with the warm milk and baking soda, until well combined.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the sifted flour and mashed bananas, alternating a spoonful of each at a time, and then mixing. Lastly add the chocolate buttons and honey and mix to just combine. Pour into large loaf tin, or divide between two small loaf tins.
- Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes depending on size of tins. Insert a skewer into the bread. If it comes out clean the loaf is ready. Cool loaves in tins, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Store wrapped in greaseproof paper in an airtight tin in a cool place.
Tip: If bananas are going brown quickly in the fruit bowl, place the whole bananas in freezer to keep. Use the frozen in this recipe, allowing 10 minutes to thaw before peeling.
