Banana and Chocolate Bread


Banana Bread

I put an SOS out on twitter the other day regarding some black bananas I had in the fruit bowl.  The Ginger Gourmand came to my rescue when she suggested I try her recipe for Banana and Walnut Bread. I tinkered as usual and on my daughters request used one of her milk chocolate Easter Eggs instead of the nuts.

The result is a wonderfully moist bread, which gets better after a few days in the tin!

This fantastic no bake Easter tiffin cake comes courtesy of Jules over at The Butcher Baker Blog. Hubby has an unhealthy addiction to mini eggs so he was in heaven with this and the fact it can be made in 10 minutes is an added bonus (the downside is you have to wait for it to set!).
