Chocolate and Banana Drops

My sister made this last week, she did the baking and I did the writing. We got this recipe from a good house keeping book which was printed in 1958. We were looking for a recipe for over-ripe bananas. In the ones that Abbie made, there wasn’t much of a chocolate taste so I recommend you add double the amount. They look more like biscuits than drops but that’s possibly because she used soft margarine instead of butter.

  • 320g flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 90g butter
  • 230g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g melted chocolate
  • 5 mashed bananas
  1. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper, pre heat the oven to gas mark 7, 210 *c ,425 *f
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarb, and salt together.
  3. Then, in a large separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
  4. Once creamed add the eggs and vanilla extract.
  5. Next beat in the chocolate into the mix.
  6. Then, alternate between mixing in the flour mixture and bananas into the other mixture.
  7.  Plop heaped teaspoons on the baking tray about 1.5″ apart  then put in the oven for 10 – 12 min at the top of the oven.
