When I made Banana and Blueberry bread a week or so ago I felt there was something missing. Rich dark chocolate. Ripe banana goes so well with dark chocolate, i knew this cake, which is really quite moist and dense, would benefit from being speckled with dark chocolate chips. So that's what I've done and it's a step change from the original. Moreish! Heat your oven to 180C.

OMG I've just had a bad case of the mid morning munchies, after doing some research on the health benefits of ginger (ginger makes me sick, but has some amazing anti nausea properties amongst other things). I couldn't resist the lure of my kitchen any longer, so decided to nip downstairs and make pancakes. I was sceptical. This is a Jamie recipe, mashing up a banana, with an egg and 3 tbs of wholemeal self raising flour. And boy they were good! I didn't have any blueberries,
