If you watched the Great British Bake Off for Sports Relief you will have seen one of the technical challenges was for all the contestants to make Mary Berry’s Banana and Chocolate Loaf cake. Surprisingly, for such a simple cake, it was one of the most disastrous challenges I think I’ve ever seen! However, I was inspired to give it a go, convinced that I could make a better job of it – and I did!
I always seem to have overripe bananas in the fruit bowl, so any recipe that uses up squishy bananas is going to be a hit with me – and this one was truly delicious. This may be because I melted a Lindt Teddy Bear to drizzle over the top but I’m sure any sort of chocolate would be equally yummy!
