Eggless Choc Chip Banana Bread

With the egg price rising here in Cape Town and the farmers concerned about the supply of eggs in the next few months, I set about to see if I could create egg free recipes that taste just as good as the “eggful “ones.

I turned my attention on a South African classic: Banana Bread. I am really chuffed with this recipe, I think even, dare I say, Vegans will be enthusiastic about it, if they left the chocolates chips out.

I took my stick blender and whizzed up a tin of pears to make the pear puree,but  I drained off the syrup first.

While experimenting, there are a few things that I have discovered. The first is that eggless recipes take longer to bake. You need to use more than the “toothpick in the bread comes out clean method”. Press the top of the loaf to make sure it springs back quickly. If you think the top of the loaf is getting too brown, place a piece of tin foil on top to prevent it going too brown.

Secondly, I’ve been so surprised with how delicious these recipes are and just how long they stay moist. This banana bread freezes really well too.
