Rosie's Banana Butterscotch Loaf


From the time I saw this cake in Rosie Bakes A piece of Cake, I have been wanting to make them. To be honest if you go to her place you would want to make all the delicious cakes you see there. I thank god that I don't gain weight by just drooling on her pictures and recipes. And I have to say I have drooled there a lot.

If you want to make this cake you can check out here for the recipe.

She used Green & Black’s Butterscotch chocolate I didn't see it in the shops here so i just used dark chocolate. And instead of pecan nuts used walnuts.

Can you imagine the cake is made without any butter. So yesterday with coffee I had 2 slices my excuse for having the second helping was that there is no butter in it so can't do any harm.

Hey if you make them you will also use the same excuse for taking a second helping.They are just delicious.
I am sending this to Bindhya from In Love with Food for her event These are few of my favourite things.


Few Ingridients


Mixing Sugar and Eggs


Almost done


Reday to go in the oven.
I did add a bit more nuts than the recipe
