How to Make a Delicious Chocolate Banana Loaf
Making this loaf is simple, effective and great to get the kids involved. The butter and sugar can be creamed together using a food processor, after that it is just a case of adding the rest of the ingredients, mixing together and baking.
In my house we are lucky if this loaf survives the day, however if you do need to store it I would recommend up to 1 week in an airtight container.
I hope you all enjoy making and eating this as much as I do!
