Gluten Free Banana and Chocolate Loaf

You have to admit, most of us have had a great summer so far – weather wise at least.Β We have certainly been making the most of the new French doors, on our extension, on these warm summer evenings πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

We have found though that with the warm weather, the bananas have ripened extra quickly. Not that we don’t eat enough or even that we buy too much. Oh no! It’s just an excuse to make some banana loaf πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

And this recipe couldn’t be any easier!

Preheat the oven to 160c (fan assisted) or Gas 4 and line a 2lb loaf.

  • 75g soft butter
  • 110g light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 180g gluten free plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 ripe bananas – mashed
  • 75g chocolate chips

Blend the dry ingredients and put to one side.

Whisk the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one at a time.

Stir in the dry ingredients, followed by the mashed bananas and chocolate chips. Stir until fully combined and then pour into the prepared loaf tin. Pop into the oven and bake for about 40 minutes. Or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the tin before turning out. Slice and enjoy, with or without butter πŸ˜€
