Bill Granger’s Choc Banana Bread

Posted on: December 31, 2008

I found this recipe on Nigella’s website out of all places. As i was attending a Christmas breakfast, i thought it was the perfect time to test this out. I love banana bread on it’s own, so when it’s teamed up with chocolate chip, i knew it was going to be pretty special.
