Banana, chocolate & honey loaf
Here is the recipe. I left out dates and put in some dark chocolate chunks!
200g self-raising flour
160g Lurpak slightly salted butter (room temperature)
80g caster sugar
2tbsp clear honey (I used local honey) + 1tbsp for drizzling
2 medium ripe bananas
80g chopped dates
40g chopped walnuts
Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan (Gas 3)
Butter + line a loaf tin (I hate this bit)
Mash the bananas then add all the ingredients to the bowl except the extra honey, nuts + dates.
Once its all mixed add the nuts + dates and pour into the tin
cook for 1 hr (or 1hr 15) test with a skewer to make sure its ready then when its warm make several holes with a skewer and pour over the remaining honey. Easy, even I could do it!
Allow to cool completely, then turn out and peel off the greeseproof paper, cut into thick slices and serve with a cup of tea.
