After missing out on the previous 2 bakes from Sweet and Simple Bake, I'm back in action for January's bake! What a better way to start the year with the most wonderful combination - banana and chocolate?
I almost forgot about the bananas I bought...and in the end, I could only use half of them, as the other half of the bunch had began to rot.
As I went through this recipe, I was a bit unsure...at the part on adding the butter and rubbing it in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Maybe I am too narrow in my knowledge, isn't this supposed to be for pastry making? Nevertheless, I followed the recipe exactly, except that I had to half the portion (since I did not have enough bananas). The other change I made was to add extra chocolate chips.
The fragrance of the banana filled the kitchen after half an hour, and by the time it was almost cooled, we just had to take a slice.
Mine turned out a little too moist and crumbly, other than that, the taste was definitely awesome.
Go on, give yourself a little banana treat today, the recipe is here.
