Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20x30cm baking tin.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine bananas, egg, melted butter and milk.
Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until blended. Be careful not to over mix.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. The cake is done when a skewer inserted into centre of cake comes out clean. (It will have some melted chocolate, but no crumbs).
Pleasantly surprised by this. Had tried a banana and chocolate loaf from the bbcgoodfood website previously and found it to be dry and overpowered by the banana. This was delicious, moist, easy to make and wonderful. I made it in a 10" loaf tin rather than a baking tray and also covered the top with chocolate ganache to add a bit more chocolate. Mmm! - 05 Sep 2011
I had some over-ripe bananas to be used so I thought I'd try out this recipe. It was very easy to follow and worked well. Instead of chocolate chips, I used small chunk of chocolate but it worked just as well. The cake was very moist. I added some chocolate icing which worked well! - 05 Apr 2013
