Difficulty: Easy
Serves: Serves 10-12
110g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste
200g caster sugar
2 eggs
170g dark chocolate chips
3 tbsp smooth peanut butter


  • Preheat the oven to 170˚C/150˚C fan/gas mark 3. Grease a 900g loaf tin with butter and dust with flour.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. In a second bowl, combine the bananas, milk and cinnamon.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a third bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs to the butter mixture, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir the banana mixture into the butter mixture, then fold in the dry mixture until well combined.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips and peanut butter until just combined. Transfer the mixture into the prepared loaf tin.
  • Bake for around 70 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before slicing.
