- 175g plain flour
- 2tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 80g milk chocolate chips
- 150g caster sugar
- 125g soft butter
- 2 eggs
- 3 mashed bananas
- Chocolate buttons (decoration)
- Drop of milk
- 30g icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees or gas mark 3.
Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl.
Add the two eggs.
Add the butter and mix it all together.
Gradually add in the mashed banana and the chocolate chips.
Grab a cake tin and grease it, or line it with baking paper.
Pour the cake mixture into the tin, creating a dip in the centre.
Bake for 25 minutes, checking on it regularly.
To see if it’s cooked stick a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean the cake is done. If not return to the oven, until golden brown.
Carefully remove cake from tin and leave it at least two hours to cool.
Mix the icing sugar with a small amount of milk, to create a thick paste. Use the thick paste to stick down chocolate buttons in the pattern of your choice.
Serve up and enjoy!
