Simply Banana Chocolate Cake


When I started baking, Banana Cake was my first battle. I thought that once I learned to make it, then its the gauge that I can bake.True enough, it was my first masterpiece, be it in a cake, a bread, or muffin but of course I needed to level up. My banana cake should not be plain nor with white chocolate icing only. I will make a chocolate version and very soon.. I made it. What I like about this cake: the preparation and the ingredients are simple, the process is easy to do and yet, the taste is so addictive because its soft, moist and not so sweet. 

Printable Recipe
Ingredients:
For the cake:
3/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
3 large eggs
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
250 grams self-raising flour
3/4 cup dark cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
For the filling:
2 bananas, not very ripe, sliced
juice of 1 lemon
150 ml whipped cream
2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
For the icing:
200 grams good quality white chocolate
1/4 cup unsalted butter
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350. 
Brush the baking pans with butter or oil then dust with flour. 
Combine self-raising flour, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar, add the eggs one at a time then slowly add the flour/salt mixture. Mix well.
Divide the cake batter between two tins and bake for about 40 minutes.
Leave the cakes in the tin for about 10 minutes and then turn out on a wire rack to cool.
To make the filling: 
Toss the sliced bananas in the lemon juice. 
Mix 2 tbsp cocoa powder into the whipped cream and spread this on top of one of the cake followed by banana slices and sandwich the two cakes together.
For the icing: 
Melt butter and chocolate together in a heatproof bowl suspended over a sauce pan of barely simmering water. Spread the melted chocolate and butter on top and side of the cake and that's it..

The last piece and had not I asked my kids to spare a slice for me...then I have nothing but a memory of this picture perfect slice of a cake. I cant count anymore the times I made this cake.. and every time, its gone with the wind..šŸ˜you know what I mean..šŸ˜
