Chocolate Banana Swirl Loaf

The perfect make-ahead recipe... lovely for a family breakfast on the go but also makes a lovely addition to any picnic basket.


My children love chocolate and banana but you could choose your family's favourite ingredients. I also have a recipe for a savoury version.

For the bread dough: 

12g fresh yeast

500g strong white bread flour
300ml water
5g salt
15g sugar


For the Filling:
1 jar chocolate spread
2 bananas, sliced

Golden caster sugar


For the bread dough:

1. Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a dough. Then allow to rise for 1 hour.

2. Knock the dough back, then roll out into a long rectangular shape about 1/2 inch thick, about 36 inches long and 12 inches wide. 

1. Spread the dough surface with chocolate spread and top with sliced banana. Pull the dough over the filling so it looks like a very large sausage roll. , then transfer to a baking tray, brush with “egg wash and sprinkle with gold caster sugar. 

2. Bring one end round to the other so that they join up. Pinch and pat the two ends together firmly to form a doughnut-shaped bread. Brush on olive oil and sprinkle the loaf with a little sea salt. Transfer to a baking tray and allow to proof for 20 minutes. 

3. Place in a preheated 200 C oven until golden, about 35 minutes.
