Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Sooooooo, it’s my dad’s birthday today and he’s 58! Super old! Just kidding, he’s only middle aged, but anyway at his work, you have to take in cake on your birthday. I know, totally unfair, surely other people should bring in cake for you?

Well, no matter, because it just gives me a great excuse to get baking!

This banana bread is so moist and yummy that you won’t be able to stop it from being devoured immediately. Luckily I doubled this recipe to make two loaves!


  • 125 grams butter (room temperature)
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 350 grams bananas (reall ripe, mashed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 grams flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 80g chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/ 160C fan and grease and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. In the bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  3. Beat in bananas (if the mixture has begun to split, sprinkle in some of the flour)
  4. Sift together the dry ingredients then stir into the batter. Sprinkle over chocolate chips and fold in.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf tin and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cover with foil halfway to prevent over browning.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing the banana bread from the tin.
