We thought our September Coffee of the Month was such a rich, nuanced new roast would be the perfect touch to a spot of home baking, in particular to this mouthwatering Banana & Walnut Coffee loaf recipe which we have put together for you…
This recipe draws on a subtle flavour, enhancing the delicious depth of quite possibly one of the most comforting home-bakes, rather than a knock-your-socks-off coffee hit, making it the perfect all rounder for coffee and cake lovers alike! Whether you’re hosting a get together with friends or looking for a quiet companion to your afternoon read with a coffee in the armchair, you won’t want to do it without a slice of this by your side from now on!
Makes approx. 6 hearty slices | Cooking Time: 50-65 mins
140g Golden Caster Sugar
170g Self Raising Flour
140g Unsalted Butter
Pinch of Nutmeg
Pinch of Sea Salt
1tsp Baking Powder
(30ml) Shot of Papua New Guinea Goroka B Espresso
Large handful of Walnuts
Large Handful of Chocolate Chips
1. Preheat oven to 190° and grease and a line a loaf tin.
2. Cream together your butter and sugar in a bowl until nice and fluffy.
3. Crack and beat your eggs and weigh out your flour and baking powder before adding slowly, bit-by-bit, to your sugar/butter mixture. Make sure to give it all a good beating at this stage to get plenty of air into the mix!
4. Add your nutmeg, sea salt and Papua New Guinea Goroka B espresso shot and give another good stir. (Your mix shouldn’t be too runny, to keep it thick, you might want to add a little flour if needed!)
5. Mash your bananas seperately before also beating into your mixture.
6.Gently stir through most of your walnuts and chocolate chips.
7. Pour mixture into your lined tin and top with your leftover walnuts, chocolate chips and if you fancy an extra kick, why not also sprinkle over a tsp of fine ground coffee too!!
8. Pop in the oven and bake for 20 mins before checking and turning round.
9. Bake for a further 20-25 minutes until golden – a good tip for knowing when it’s ready is to gentle pierce with a clean knife and check no sticky mixture residue is stuck to it when you pull it back out!
10. Leave to cool slightly before removing from the tin.
11. Pour yourself a cup of Papua New Guinea Goroka B, slice yourself a nice hearty piece of warm cake, pop your feet up and enjoy!
