For the Bread

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3 large bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup (50g) caster/granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons (25g) plain/all-purpose flour


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.
