Good food is
good mood.

Our guests in Ericeira always compliment us on the amazing banana bread we serve as breakfast special so we thought we’d share our recipe with you! As you may know, Banana bread is basically made of mashed bananas. Sweet and fluffy, it resembles a cake and includes different types of nuts and a bit of chocolate. It will bring lots of strength and energy to your surfing day!

Servings: One loaf

Banana bread Rapturecamps recipe
  • Instructions.
  • Ingredients.
    • Start off with preparing your special ingredients (if using). Blend three-quarters of the chocolate and the nuts in a blender. Break the remaining quarter of the chocolate & nuts into large chunks for later.
    • Prepare the sides & bottom of a long cake-pan with a coating of flour & butter (to prevent the bread-mix from sticking) and preheat the oven to 180°C.
    • Next, mix both the flour and baking soda into a bowl. In a second bigger bowl mix the melted butter, white sugar, eggs, a pinch of salt, milk and the bananas. Add the flour mix into the wet ingredients and combine until the mixture forms a dough.
    • Once your dough is nice and smooth add the chocolate-nut mix and stir together – there should be no big chunks left. Now pour the dough into the cake-pan and sprinkle the rest of your nuts and chocolate chunks onto it.
    • Put the bread in the pre-heated oven and bake for around 20-30 minutes – use a chopstick to check if the bread is done.
    • Tip: If there’s still dough on the chopstick it still needs some time in the oven!
    • Once it’s done, take it out and leave to cool.
