PSA: Zoe Sugg tweaked Mary Berry's banana bread recipe to perfection

We'll be making this banana bread recipe this weekend… 

Zoe Sugg is one keen baker, and at the beginning of lockdown, the popular YouTube star took to the kitchen to make banana bread and filmed it for her Instagram followers. She wrote alongside a short video: "Probably the 1000th banana loaf recipe you’ve seen so far during isolation, but when a girl's got overly ripe bananas and an Instagram account what else she gonna do?"

Dressed in a springtime co-ord by Fabienne Chapot, the 30-year-old told her followers that she had used Mary Berry's chocolate chip banana bread, but tweaked it by doubling up the ingredients to make a slightly bigger loaf. Plus, she covered the top of her loaf with demerara sugar - a tip from her mum - to give it a little crunch. We're all for that!

During the video, Zoe complained to her boyfriend Alfie that her chocolate chips had dropped to the bottom of the loaf, and her fans rushed to the comments section to advise her to coat the chocolate chips in flour before adding into the loaf mixture.
