2. Blend bananas with vanilla extract and salt, then beat in the oil. Beat in the eggs one by one and then beat in sugar.
3. Mix flour, bicarb and espresso powder. Beat these into batter.
4.Put batter in loaf tin and put in oven for 50-60 mins or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
5. Try and leave it to cool before digging in, if you can wait that long :).
This is such a yummy recipe and the addition of the coffee gives it an almost chocolately taste. Yum Yum! I hope you give this a wee try and if you know of any other yummy Nigella baking recipes please let me know :). I will leave you today with another picture of my wedding (last one, I promise!). Can't believe it was a whole 2 months ago...
