  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 mashed ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Using nonstick cooking spray. Grease a 9-by-5-inch baking pan and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the oil, eggs, bananas, vanilla, granulated sugar and molasses until well combined, then set aside.
  3. In a separate jug, combine the milk and vinegar and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Once combined, stir in the walnuts and chocolate.
  4. Add 1/3 of the dry mixture to the wet mixture in the first bowl, then stir gently with a wooden spoon until almost combined. Then, add half the milk mixture from the jug and combine. Add another 1/3 of the dry ingredients and the remaining milk mixture then mix. Once combined, add the final 1/3 of the dry ingredients and combine.
  5. Transfer the mixture into the pre-greased pan and sprinkle with raw brown sugar.
  6. Place into the oven and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour, or until deep golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out dry.
  7. Set aside to stand and cool for 20 minutes before turning out of the pan. Once cooled, turn onto a wire rack, serve and enjoy.
