Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks

This banana bread is amazing - so moist and it's full of chocolate! Perfect for using up overripe bananas and so very easy to make - no need for a mixer. Serve warm straight from the oven or enjoy the next day for morning or afternoon tea. I hope you enjoy this family favourite as much as we do.

2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup caster sugar
125g butter, melted
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate melts (buttons or chips)

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a loaf tin and line the base with non-stick baking paper. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the caster sugar and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, mix the butter, eggs, banana, vanilla extract and chocolate melts. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, being careful not to over mix.  Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
