Banana chocolate loaf


3 oz butter or margarine

4 oz sugar

6 oz SR flour

2 oz cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

2 ripe bananas (black is fine)

A splosh of milk

45g bar of black chocolate

Throw everything but the milk and bar of chocolate into a food processor, and whizz until smooth, adding enough milk to get to a dropping consistency.

Chop up the chocolate bar with a knife, cutting each square into four.  Mix into the rest of the mixture.

Pile into a greased 2 lb loaf tin and cook at 180C for 50 minutes, or 150 for about 60 minutes, until it springs back when pressed lightly, and a knife inserted comes out clean.


Turn out as soon as manageable, and allow to cool, then wrap in a bread bag.  This loaf improves after a couple of days.
