Not to miss Banana Loaf

This banana loaf has a little bit of this and a little bit of that which makes it super delicious
I adapted a banana loaf recipe out of 'Baking Made Easy' by Lorraine Pascale

What you need is

100g softened butter
150g soft light brown sugar
2 drops vanilla essence
3 eggs
150g plain flour
pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking powder
2 overripe mashed bananas

dark chocolate for melting

Preheat oven to 170c
Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and put to one side

Put the butter and sugar in a mixer and beat well until fluffy
Add the vanilla and 1 egg and beat well
Add the flour, salt, ginger, baking powder and the rest of the eggs and beat for 1 minute
Stir in the bananas and put the mixture in the prepared tin

Bake in the oven for 55-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out of the cake clean
Melt a small amount of chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan with simmering water

When the cake is out of the oven leave for a few moments before you peel away the greaseproof paper from the sides of the cake then drizzle with the melted chocolate
Leave to cool

Eat with friends and enjoy
