Chocolate Butterscotch Banana Bread

Chocolate Butterscotch Banana Bread myfavouritepastime.comI hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We ate a lot of food over the over the weekend so I’m planning to starve myself for about 5 days to avoid adding extra pounds. The best thing about this cake is the addition of butterscotch chips. They are very addictive, I tell you. I wish you a wonderful week!

Points to note:

  • Please note that oven temperatures are given as a guideline only. You may need to add or reduce the suggested temperature depending on your oven. I baked this cake at 325°F (160°C) for 60 minutes.
  • For cup measures: spoon the flour into the cup, heaping it up over the top, then slide a knife across the top to level off the extra. Be careful not to shake or tap the cup to settle down the flour or you will have more than you need.
  • If using the small sweet bananas use six to eight depending on the size.

    1. That sounds like a good idea. When I baked mine there were no friends over so you can imagine how much I ate.
