Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Yields 1 loaf

Ingredients

For the Bread

  • 1 and 1/2 cups plain/all-purpose flour 190g
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder 50g
  • 3/4 cup caster/granulated sugar 150g
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 3 large bananas mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil 80ml
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt 120g

For the Cheesecake

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese 115g, softened
  • 1/4 cup caster/granulated sugar 50g
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons plain/all-purpose flour 25g

Instructions

For the Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. Whisk together the egg, banana, vanilla, vegetable oil, and yogurt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan.

For the Cheesecake

  1. Whisk together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, vanilla, and flour until smooth and combined. Spread the cheesecake mixture evenly over the bread batter, then top with the remaining batter.

  2. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover loosely with aluminium foil halfway through baking to prevent the bread from browning too much. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

Notes

Bread stays fresh in an air-tight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 5 days. It also freezes well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.
