This was originally a Merry Berry recipe, since she is and always has been my favourite baker! But I have made a few changes (basically adding more chocolate chips). I also made this cake in a food processor, which saves on mess and washing up, and makes it super easy to make.

You need:

- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 tbsp of milk (you may not need this)
- 50g soft butter
-  75g plain flour
- 75g caster sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 egg
- 70g dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line a small (450g) loaf tin with baking parchment.

2. Put the bananas into the food processor and blend, or if you aren't using a food processor mash with a fork.

3. Then add the rest of the cake ingredients (except the milk and the chocolate chips) into the food processor and blend. Alternatively add the rest of the ingredients into a bowl with the banana and mix together. Add the milk if you think the batter is too thick.

4. Stir in most of the chocolate chips, leaving some for the top and then pour into the cake tin. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top, and bake for 40 minutes until well risen.

5. Leave it to cool in the tin and then remove it from the tin. If you want you can melt chocolate and drizzle it over the top, but I don't really think you need to.

6. This tastes best when its still a little warm and the chocolate chips are still melted, so taste it as soon as possible!



  1. I love Mary Berry too! My Nan gifted me one of her baking books last Christmas, it’s called Fast Cakes, and has become a baking must have for me. This banana bread looks amazing!! :-) xx

    1. Ooh that book sounds like something I would like! My brother bought me one of her books (that this recipe was from) for my 15th birthday and I have got so much use out of it, its one of those things I will keep forever!
