Ingredients

  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g light brown sugar
  • 100g whole, skinless hazelnuts
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 3 medium, ripe bananas mashed with a fork
  • 1/2tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g plain chocolate chips

Instructions

  1.  Preheat the oven to 175C then grease and line a loaf tin with baking parchment.
  2. Beat the sugar and flour together for five minutes until light and creamy, add the eggs one at a time mixing well between each addition.  Scoop in your mashed bananas and vanilla extract and mix.  While you beat your butter and sugar toast the hazelnuts in the oven for a few minutes.  Once toasted pop them into a food processor and pulse them until they’re finely ground.
  3. Add the hazelnuts, flour and baking powder to the butter and mix until combined. Stir through the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon before pouring the batter into the prepared tin and baking for 60 – 75 minutes, the cake should be golden brown and springs back if prodded with a finger.
  4. Allow to cool in the tin before turning out and enjoying while still warm.
