※ Chocolate chip banana bread with a cinnamon sugar maple crust
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon (for topping)
- 1 tsp sugar (for topping)
- 1 tsp maple sugar (for topping)
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup (80mL) oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- Butter and honey, to serve
METHODPreheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a loaf pan (mine is 11cm x 21cm).
Sift the flour & baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in the sugars. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add a mashed banana to the dry ingredients and add the combined wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips, fold until just combined - do not overmix.
Place mixture into the loaf pan, sprinkle with cinnamon, and maple sugar and regular sugar and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove and place on a wire rack to cool.
Once cooled, slice it thickly. Serve with a spread of butter and drizzle with honey.
NOTE: I get my maple sugar from USA foods online its around $7 and lasts a long time. If you live OS you can get it here
