Making a fairly decent Choco-banana loaf DO's:
DO mix 2 eggs, 3 bananas and 1 tsp of Vannilla Essence in a whizzy mixer you got from Woolies.
DO add 3/4 cup sugar, 2 cups of plain flour, 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt and mix.
DO add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup choco chips (double the recomended amount).
DO bake for an hour in a 180 degree oven.
DO comment that it's more bready than sweety and that next time u have to get rid of a freezer full of brown banana's you'll ensure it's a 'cake' rather than a 'load'
DO not stress about it because you're taking it home for family tea anyway so you won't have to labour through it all on your own.
