Baby Bakes- Banana and Chocolate Chip Loaf

One of my earliest memories is of me, my mum & brother baking cheese twists in our old kitchen. It always puts a smile on my face and I've always vowed to bake with my own children. Now that Ava is old enough I thought that I would share some recipes that we have enjoyed making together. Not only is it fun but she experimenting with different flavours and textures which I think is important.

So here's is the first recipe in a series of Baby Bakes.

You will need:

100g softened butter
225g self-raising flour
100g soft brown sugar
100g chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 tbsps honey or golden syrup
3 bananas.

Enthusiastic toddler optional.

Preheat your oven at 180 C/ gas mark 4.

Rub the butter and flour together with your fingers so they become "breadcrumbs"

Add the sugar and give it a stir

Add the eggs and honey, stir them in.

In a separate bowl mash the bananas together with a fork. Add them to the mixture and stir in the chocolate chips.

Grease proof a loaf tin or, like us, use a paper case to line your tin. Pour in the mixture, level it out and pop in the oven for 1 hour.

To test if it is ready stick a skewer into the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean you're good to go.

There you have it, a super easy, toddler friendly recipe.

Let me know if you decide to make any of the recipes in the Baby Bakes series by tweeting me a picture or tagging me on Instagram. I'd love you to join in.
