Mostly for my own reference, since damn I got annoyed at myself for not reading the whole recipe here and measuring out a bowl of flour way too early. XD And I fudged it about a bit, but it came out well anyway.
'Nana bread, makes 1 loaf that lasts as long as you can bear to leave it.
- 3 bananas (apparently them being overripe makes them easier to mush, but who has the patience? Not me!)
- 2 eggs
- 4oz butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
- 4oz brown sugar
- 8oz self-raising flour
- chocolate chips to taste (I just get a packet of the Dr Oetker ones, since it's easy and you get plenty for this. Or a cookie recipe.)
Put the oven on Gas Mark 4. Then check oven really is on 4 instead of 3 3/4 because the knob is finicky.
Cream butter and sugar together until delicious. Add the vanilla, eggs, chocolate chips and the bananas you forgot to mash beforehand. (Slicing them not-too-finely and them mashing them a bit with the fork as the mixture gets thicker works fine.)
Stir in the flour a little at a time so it doesn't attempt to explode out of the bowl.
Grease a loaf tin to give your arm a rest, then pour in the 'nana mix. Lick fork, bowl and scraping device thoroughly.
Leave in the oven for 1 hour-70m until you can skewer it and have a knife come out clean of anything but melted chocolate, then run said knife between the 'nana bread and the tin to loosen it and shake out onto a cooling rack.
Ignore any advice to leave it to cool. Well, not too much. It is DELICIOUS warm with a scrape of butter melting into it.
Offer it around so that all may share in, admire and praise the 'nana bread of nom.
