Banana bread with blackberries and chocolate

Banana bread with blackberries and chocolate

This banana bread is very moist, delicate and cakey (it’s more like a banana cake). It’s not overly sweet, so when you like very sweet cakes, you can add a little more sugar and instead of dark chocolate use a milk chocolate. I baked it in a small baking pan and it was so good, that we ate it all by ourselves. The combination of bananas, blackberries and chocolate is just heavenly! The prepration is very simple, you can have a delicious cake on your table in no time!

I’m sure you’ll love it!

Outside blackberry season you can use frozen fruit or make my other recipe for banana bread: banana bread with cinnamon, cardamom and chocolate.

  • 1 big egg
  • 85 g light brown sugar 3 oz
  • 60 g butter melted and cooled, 2.1 oz
  • 1,5 banana 130g / 4.6 oz, mashed with a fork
  • 0,5 banana sliced
  • 140 g all-purpose flour 4.9 oz
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 100 g blackberries 3.5 oz
  • 50 g dark chocolate roughly chopped, 1.8 oz


  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C / 350 °F / Gas Mark 4.
  • Prepare all the ingredients.
  • Prepare a small rectangular 17,5x8,5 cm / 7x3.5 inch loaf pan by buttering it and lining with parchment paper.
  • In a small pot melt the butter, take it off the heat and let it cool.
  • Place the egg and sugar in a mixing bowl, whisk it with a mixer (using a whisk attachment) on medium-high speed for 5 minutes until the mixture is pale, light and foamy.
  • Add the mashed bananas and melted and cooled butter, mix until just combined.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together. Add to the batter, stir in with a spatula, until almost combined.
  • Add the chocolate and blackberries, fold in, taking care not to over mix.
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Lay the banana slices on the top.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. It may run longer or shorter in your oven.


* You can also double the quantities and bake this in a larger rectangular 27 x 8,5cm / 11 x 3 inch baking tin for about 50 minutes.
* The best bananas to use here are bananas that are only just beginning to turn spotty and brown (not brown overripe bananas).
