Ingredients
  • 115 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g granulated sugar
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 bananas (peeled & mashed)
  • 5 tbsp SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 60 g dark chocolate (chopped)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas mark 4.
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until you have a light and fluffy mixture. Mix in the eggs gradually with the milk and vanilla. Fold in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. Now fold in the mashed bananas until almost combined.
  3. Grease and line the base of a loaf tin and pour in half of the cake mixture. Now in a small bowl add the peanut butter and place in the microwave for 30-45 seconds - stir every 15 seconds until runny. Pour over the cake mixture and sprinkle with half of the chocolate chunks.
  4. Pour over the remaining cake mixture. Using a wooden pick or skewer, gently swirl the batter. Sprinkle the top of the batter with dark chocolate chunks.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for an hour or until risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for 5 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
