White Chocolate Banana Bread

I was lucky enough to work with Countdown on this project. I was asked to make one of their delicious recipes from their website countdown.co.nz. I decided to choose the Apple banana bread, as I had a few brown banana’s that needed using. I left out the Apple and added Countdowns own-brand white chocolate drops. Super easy to make and great for school lunches. See my version here.

White Chocolate Banana Bread

  • 125g butter, chopped, at room temperature, plus extra to serve 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate drops
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Lightly grease a 10 x 20cm loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper.
  • 2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • 3. In a separate medium bowl, sift flour, baking powder and baking soda together. Fold banana, milk and flour mixture into the creamed mixture until combined.
  • 4. Pour mixture into loaf pan. Sprinkle white chocolate drops on top. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the centre. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 5. Cut into 2cm thick slices, and serve with butter to spread.
  • Fresh Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
