From the author:

Try slicing the cooked banana bread and placing between two pieces of greaseproof paper, then toast on both sides in a frying pan over a low-medium heat. It’ll caramelise the banana and melt the chocolate in the bread, and make the house smell pretty amazing. Just writing about it makes us hungry.


  • 100g melted butter, slightly cooled, plus extra for greasing
  • 120g almond butter
  • 100g sark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 160g soft light brown sugar, plus 1 tbsp
  • 180g plain flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
