First and foremost, good quality dark chocolate is what you need for this banana bread. I use Green & Black 70% velvet edition here. Secondly, you need mushy, overripe bananas. Both are key to the success of this delicious banana bread.
For the past year and a half banana bread has been on the weekly agenda for many people. It’s funny what lockdown turned us towards.
Hope you enjoy!

Mix together all of the dry ingredients followed by the bananas and milk to form a wet dough.
