Every self respecting baker, needs the comfort food of life, Banana Bread. One for every occasion, Breakfast , Dinner, Lunch, Tea or Supper. Young or old its one for everyone……… unless you don’t of course like bananas. 🙈😂
So here I am trying to give you a fully intolerant one, that’s not going to bore you to death. So I’ve ramped it up to give you the dual personality variety, you can of course omit the chocolate, but really why would you? It seals the deal and adds a little quirkiness to the whole bake.
Lets Posh it up, make it Sexy………..Oh yes Sexy Banana Bread in two extra steps, added splashes on chocolate and a few Banana Chips sooooo easy ( Oh and of course don’t feel obliged if you don’t want either 🙊).
Of course I will provide some pretty pictures and introduce you to the joys of aquafaba. Its revolutionised my Gluten Free Vegan baking in some recipes. And yes its the juice out of a can of chickpeas, or any other legume you choose. Ignore the smell it disappears on cooking………honest.
In this recipe its the sole egg swap, but in others its used in conjunction with other things known as suitable egg subs, but today lets make it easy
Right best crack on you are yawning already. Beware of disturbing Banana footage coming up, so feel free to scroll straight by😂
Now Banana warning, I softened the blow with a nice picture first 😂😂😂😂

It really is the powerhouse of Banana Breads, covering everyone in one bake. The recipe has been developed from UK baking Goddess, Mary Berry’s. No need to complicate the matter, she gets it right on a standard bake so why not on the intolerance level. You can see from the crumbporn on this bread, there’s no denseness here, this bread just leaves so much room for adaptions and additions I cant even imagine that you could come up with.
Hope you enjoyed my Banana loaf, so crack on and get it made !!!! Feel free to leave me comment, especially if I’ve made Banana Bread Sexy
