Rachel says: ‘This is a firm favourite in our house as it’s so moist and full of flavour. It’s great to eat a couple of days after baking and is a really good pick me up.’



  1. Preheat the oven to 160c, 325f, Gas Mark 3
  2. Butter the insides and line with buttered baking parchment of a 2lb Loaf tin ( 23cm x 9cm – 8cm deep )
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, ground cinnamon together, then set aside.
  4. Mash 3 of the bananas in a bowl and mix in the soured cream and vanilla extract.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the Kerrygold butter and both of the sugars, until light and fluffy. 
  6. Gradually add the beaten eggs, beating well between each addition. 
  7. Add the flour in 2 or 3 batches with the mixer on a slow speed, mixing well until throughly combined.
  8. Fold in the banana and soured cream mixture. 
  9. Stir through the chocolate chips and spoon the batter into the tin and spread level.
  10. Peel and slice the last banana and toss in the lemon juice, scatter over the top of the cake. 
  11. Bake on the middle shelf for about 45-50 mins, or untila skewer comes out clean.

    Looks like that would go perfect with coffee! I've never heard of Kerrygold butter though…I think it must only be in the UK and Europe, not the US.
