Banana Butterscotch Loaf

We have "7 wonders of the world" and if this loaf cake came into those stakes I’m sure it would be listed in this title. If you could imagine biting into a moist banana loaf, you are only halfway there with this little beauty. Throw into the mix Green & Black’s Butterscotch chocolate and pecans, now the picture begins to form of what an outstanding treat we have here. Even better still, it’s an easy cake to make too! Don’t take my word for it, I urge you to try this recipe out yourself.

Hi happy cook,
I brought normal bars of Green & Black’s Butterscotch chocolate and chopped it by hand. I would think any chocolate would be lovely in this recipe :) This really is a very good loaf cake, I hope you try it out too.
