1/3cup unsalted butter cut into small squares
3wholeripe bananas, 2 roughly mashed and 1 cut into 3 long slices
3 largeeggs, beaten
3/4cupchocolate chunksYou can chop up a good quality chocolate bar
1/2cup chopped toasted pecans
Grease an 8x8 baking dish and line with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the butter and crumble with your fingers until it's like sand.
Add the sugar, mashed bananas, eggs and honey to the flour and mix well.
Fold in the chocolate chunks with a spatula.
Add the batter to the pan and spread out evenly.
Scatter the chopped pecans over the surface of the batter then lay three slices of banana on top, slightly pushing them into the batter to settle. Trim the ends of the banana to fit the width of your pan.
Bake in the oven for around 45-50 minutes and the top seems firm when gently pushed with your fingertip.
