Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread Trial

This recipe is from Paleo Kitchen (I don’t just cook from this book, honestly!)… It was so yummy that I’ve baked it twice this week.

The first time, the bananas weren’t terribly ripe so I stuck them in an oven for 10 minutes to soften them up, which worked fantastically. I was a bit too cautious with the ‘swirling’ in the first attempt so second time around really went for it to make sure the chocolate and cinnamon flavour was distributed throughout the cake, as you can see below!

I found the baking time needed was a bit longer than in the book (probably about an hour in my fan oven)

This cake is delicious. The chocolatey cinnamon richness is a little treat in the moist banana sponge. I used dark chocolate to try to keep it as Paleo-esque as possible.

I’m taking batch number two into work tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll go down a treat. I don’t think many people are going to complain when it comes down to chocolate/banana/cinnamon cake!
