here's how it's done...

  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 200C (180C fan). Melt the butter over a low heat and leave to cool. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, flour, and sugar together.

    Using a sharp knife, slice thin pieces of the chocolate – a bit like shavings – and add to the flour mix.

    In a second bowl, mash up the bananas with a fork, then add the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

    Give it a good whisk until all ingredients are combined. Now add the banana mix to the flour and, using a spatula, fold until combined. Don’t over mix the batter.

    Divide the mix into the 12 cases, place them onto a baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes. Leave to cool.

    That’s it! All that’s left now it to take one out of its case, pour some warm vanilla custard over it and enjoy!

    Bon appétit!
