Banana Loaf with White Chocolate Chips

I had some leftover bananas so I decided to bake something small. I got myself those aluminum loaf pans like those for Sara Lee cakes so it was more convenient. You can purchase them at Phoon Huat. This recipe was inspired by my previous effort to make the banana cake.

Banana Loaf with White Chocolate Chips
80g butter
50g sugar
1 egg
2 ripe bananas
50g self raising flour
50g Quaker oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
handful of white chocolate chips
dash of cinnamon powder

  • Preheat oven to 180 deg.
  • Cream butter and sugar. Do not panic if they do not cream well.
  • Add the egg to the butter and continue to blend them.
  • Add the bananas, reserving about half of the banana for slicing and decorating the loaf. You can pre-mash the bananas before adding them.
  • The mixture will curdle but will all come together when you add the dry ingredients.
  • Add oatmeal and the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Do not overmix.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips and cinnamon powder.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and decorate it with the banana slices and some white chocolate chips.
  • Bake them for about 15-20mins or until it has risen well.

The banana loaf's texture is more grainy and crumbly.
I did not have enough flour this time so the oatmeal is replaceable.
