1 teasp Baking powder

100 g Butter melted (cold)

1-2 Bananas overripe (mashed)

150 g Chocolate chopped into small chunks

1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Butter a loaf tin (ca 1 l.) or use baking paper.

2. Beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla sugar until light and fluffy. Mix the flour with the baking powder and fold it carefully into the egg mixture together with the cold melted butter. Add the mashed banana and chocolate chunks.

3. Pour mixture into the loaf tin and bake in centre of the oven for around 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

4. Remove cake from oven and let it cool in the tin for a few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

Buon Appetito!
