Spontaneous Banana Bread

Firstly, a huge apology for slacking! Christmas was absolutely mad and I haven't really baked anything worth blogging about! However, this past weekend the girls and I had a sleepover at my friend Cathy's house. While helping her prepare dinner, she asked me to make a banana bread. I was given this recipe from BBC Food , the ingredients and a beautiful kitchen to work in. Because we were feeling a bit naughty, we added a bag of chopped Thorntons Viennese Truffles, which made the loaf gooey and chocolately.  Ingredients 285g plain flour 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 1/2 tsp salt 110g butter 225g caster sugar 2 eggs 4 ripe bananas 85ml buttermilk 1 tsp vanilla extract 100g chocolate Method 1. Preheat the oven to 180.  2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, mashed bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Mix well. 3. Fold in the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Add the chopped chocolate. 4. Line a loaf in with grease proof paper
