3 medium to large very ripe bananas
1/2 cup melted butter (115g)
3/4 cup brown sugar (145g)
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup (125g) flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup ( 170g) semi sweet , bittersweet chocolate chunks or chips.
Heat your oven to 350F. Butter a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan or spray it with a non-stick baking spray.
Mash bananas in the bottom of a large bowl. Whisk in the melted butter, then brown sugar, egg, and vanilla.
Sift baking soda, salt, cinnamon, flour & cocoa powder, sift over the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks or chips.
Pour into the Prepared pan and bake 55 to 65 minutes, until a tester or toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out batter free. ( A melted chocolate chip smear is expected, however).
Cool in the pan for 10- 15 minutes, then run a knife around the edges and invert it out onto a cooling rach.
Serve Warm or at room temperature
