One of my favorite fruits ever is a banana, and not just because it rhymes with my name. And when I think of what goes good with banana, I think of chocolate. So I came up with a chocolate cake and incorporated bananas into it to replicate a chocolate banana.
•2 cups sugar
•1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
•3/4 cup cocoa powder
•1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
•1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium sized bananas)
•1 cup warm water
•1/2 cup milk
•1/2 cup canola oil
•1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-Preheat oven to 350°
-In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
-In another large bowl, whisk together the eggs, mashed bananas, water, milk, oil, and vanilla extract.
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. You will notice that the batter is quite thin.
-Pour the batter into a greased pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes
-Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. When completely cooled, frost with a chocolate ganache or frosting
You can also add sliced bananas on the top for decoration or make it pretty with chocolate shavings. Have fun and enjoy!
