This banana fudge loaf cake is the easiest banana cake you’ll ever make! A beautifully light, brown sugar banana loaf filled with fudge pieces!
THIS, my friends, is banana loaf taken to a whole new level.
If you ever hear yourself saying “I don’t have time to bake!” then I’m here to tell you that this cake takes no longer than 10 minutes to measure the ingredients out, mix them together and place it in the oven.
This banana loaf has been adapted from a recipe by the Queen of baking herself, Mrs Mary Berry.
How to make the best banana fudge loaf cake
The key thing here is using very ripe bananas for the best flavour – the blacker the better.
I like to use soft light brown sugar to accentuate all those caramel flavours and it also helps to keep the cake nice and moist.
I like to use proper fudge chunks in this recipe – Thornton’s fudge is delicious, but you can use any dairy fudge you like.
How long will this banana loaf last?
It will last well in an airtight tin for up to 3 or 4 days. It does tend to become moister and softer after a day or two.
Can I freeze this banana loaf?
Yes – you can either freeze the whole loaf or cut into individual slices, wrap well in plastic wrap or in a tupperware box and freeze for up to 6 months.
