Chocolate Banana Beasties

I need say no more.

Prep time: 20 Mins
Baking time: 40 Mins
100g Dark Chocolate
100g White Chocolate
185g Unsalted Butter (Cut into cubes)
200g Light Muscovado Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Large Eggs and 2 Yolks
2 Bananas (Ripe and mashed)
100g Ground Almonds
65g Plain Flour
A handful of Banana Chips

This one is very easy, so let's get cracking! Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a small-ish baking tin with baking paper. The one I use is around 26x20cm. Melt together the chocolate and butter, either over a bain-marie or in the microwave (if you are confident in your timings), then set to one side for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, yolks, sugar and vanilla. Fold through the mashed banana, followed by the chocolate and butter, before adding the almonds and flour and repeating the folding process until you are left with a smooth, consistent batter. Pour into your prepared tin, arrange the banana chips on top and bake in the centre of the oven for around 40 minutes, until a metal skewer comes out with a few sticky crumbs attached.

When you are happy the mixture is baked, remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Once cool, carefully remove from the tin and slice into squares with a sharp knife. Lovely cake time!
