It is fair to say that this cake may not be the prettiest, but it sure does taste wonderful. The banana, chocolate and petit peu de caramel all compliment each other and results in a flavourful loaf style-cake. Despite the sweet ingredients, the cake was not oversweet and was surprisingly light and fluffy. Also, I'd like to add that the secret to baking the best banana baked good is... only using bananas that are extremely ripe...as in bananas that are basically black!
150g butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, tightly packed
2 large eggs
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups self raising flour
200g Mars Bars, chopped (ie. three 60g bars should be fine)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a loaf tin. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Beat in the eggs gradually; followed by all the bananas. Sift the flour on top of this mixture and throw the chopped up Mars Bars on top. Do not mix yet! Pour the milk in, and now mix all these ingredients together but stop when there are no more streaks of flour. Spoon into pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Set aside to cool.
