Preheat oven to 170c/fan 150c/gas 3. Grease and line a 900g (2lb) loaf tin.
Put the raisins and whisky in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, cover and leave for 1 hour until the raisins plump up.
Put the flour, cocoa, chocolate chips, baking powder, bicarb, and salt in a bowl and combine with a wooden spoon.
In a large bowl, mix the melted butter with the sugar and beat until blended. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the bananas. Stir in the raisins. Add the chocolate and flour mix, a third at a time, stirring well each time. Spoon into the loaf tin and level off.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 1¼ hours. Leave in the tin on a rack to cool, then turn out.
