I abhor wasting food. Old apples must be turned into apple sauce, an overload of vegetables quickly become soup and the bunch of pathetic looking bananas I discovered at the back of the fridge? Well they were just begging to be transformed into a chocolate banana cake. The type of cake that isn’t too sweet or indulgent, the one that you can have a slice of and almost feel good about it because there’s a fruit in, so it’s obviously healthy! The type that you leave on the counter and slice by slice it quickly disappears.
This chocolate banana loaf is that cake, stuffed with mashed bananas and cocoa it has that deliciously rich chocolate taste without being overly indulgent. It also tastes great with some peanut butter or compote.
