Go Bananas...

Hi there folks,

I decided this afternoon that I would whip up a little banana bread seeing as I had a couple of manky bananas floating about and I really don't like eating them when they're all brown and gooey. So what better way to use them up than to make some yummy treats.

The basic recipe that I follow is this one from UKTV Food. Because I never seem to have the right sugar, I thought I'd try using half molasses and half golden caster sugar and I also added a some chocolate spread to swirl in and marble it a little. Also, today I chose to sack off the nutmeg and add a very generous sprinkle of cinnamon, because as far as I'm concerned bananas, chocolate and cinnamon are great mates!

And here is the finished product....

It turned out delicious! However, there was some major crumbling going on...that could be due to the sugar, but I don't really care because it all eats the same!!

I really want to try some other yummy flavours in my banana bread, does anyone have any recipes they could share for next time?

Ciao for now,
