Turn down the oven to 200°C/390F/Gas Mark 6 and bake for a further 12 to 15 minutes, until just baked and a toothpick or cake tester comes out mostly clean.

Making a Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Bread/Loaf

If wanting to make bread or loaf from this recipe, simply grease and line a regular size loaf tin. Preheat the oven to 180°C or 160°C fans assisted. Follow the instructions to make the batter.
Pour the batter into the loaf tin, sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean from the centre. Allow the banana bread to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing it from the loaf pan and allowing it to cool completely before serving.
For fan-forced or fan-assisted ovens decrease the temperature by 20°C/25F.
