Banana chocolate cake

I am excited to share this updated version of my ultimate favourite recipe to bake… Banana Cake! This time it’s chocolate coated with a real nice banana base.

I love using banana because first of all its amazingly delicious and second you’ll always end up with a moist and soft textured product.

Ingredients

3 medium eggs, beat lightly

1 cup flour

1 tbsp baking soda

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup chocolate cookie chips

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

2 large ripe bananas, fork mashed

Chocolate Ganache

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup Lindt milk chocolate

1/2 Hershey cocoa powder

Method

Pre heat the oven to 390 F. Cream the butter and sugar together. Once both are well mixed, add the eggs and mashed bananas and mix well.

Combine and sift all dry ingredients and incorporate into the batter.

Pour into a baking tin. You can play around, shape it however you want. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Place the cake in the fridge for an hour before coating with chocolate

Get ready to coat the cake once it has completely cool down. To make the ganache, mix the heavy cream, chocolate and cocoa in a non-stick pan. Cook until the chocolate is melted. You can adjust the sweetness according to your liking. To coat, place the cake on a wire rack over a plate or something to catch the excess, slowly pour the ganache on the cake, add some sprinkles to make it look fun and place in the fridge for another 15 Minutes then it’s ready to be served.

Et voilà, magnifique et délicieux!
