Banana White Chocolate Chips Cake

Banana White Choc Chip Cake
The work 'scrumptious' can aptly describe this cake. It is really that good. Funny enough, like most of my experimental recipes, I stumbled across this one because I have a white chocolate bar that's about to expire and a bunch of overripe bananas nearer to the side of rotten. Thanks to member toms112 of the BBC GoodFood website who provided this delicious loaf cake. I will always go back to this recipe whenever a banana cake is requested - promise!

Banana White Chocolate Chip Cake

125 g  [1/2 cup] butter
150 g  [2/3 cup] caster sugar (superfine)
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 very ripe bananas - mashed
190 g  self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk
100 g  white chocolate chips
  1. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Pre-heat oven to 170°C/fan 150°C.
  2. If the butter is softened to room temperature, beat in a bowl with the caster sugar using an electric mixer until fluffy and light.
    Melt the butter with the sugar over medium heat. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla, mix well.
  4. Add the mashed banana and mix well.
  5. Fold in the flour alternately with the milk using a wooden spoon. Mix just enough to incorporate the flour.
  6. Add the white chocolate chips and fold to mix.
  7. Pour batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer poked in the middle comes out clean.
