  • 100g Anchor Unsalted Butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 75g soft light brown sugar
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ripe bananas (about 350g), mashed
  • 175g plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 100g milk or dark chocolate chips


1 Preheat the oven to 170°C, gas mark 3. Grease a 900g loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper. Using electric beaters, cream the butter and sugar together for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.

2 Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then beat in the vanilla and mashed bananas.

3 Sift in the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Fold through until combined, and then add and stir through the chocolate chips.

4 Tip the batter into the loaf tin and bake for 50-55 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin, then set on a wire rack to cool completely.
