Banana Chocolate Cake

This is my favorite banana cake recipe. It's dense but moist and is perfect with chocolate in it. Add any kind of nut or mix-in you like!

Banana Chocolate Loaf Cake:

150 gr soft butter
1 cup of light brown sugar
4 eggs
2 ½ cups of flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 ½ cups mashed bananas
200 gr of dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf pan and line it with parchment.
In a bowl stir together flour, baking powder and soda, set aside.
In another bowl beat the butter and sugar until fluffy, add eggs one at a time until smooth. Then mix in the flour mixture just until combined - don't over mix. Stir bananas and half of the chocolate into the cake batter, pour it into a loaf pan and scatter the rest of the chocolate on top.

Bake for about 35 minutes (or until skewer comes out clean)

  1. I always love a new banana bread (or cake) recipe and the dark chocolate chunks sound like a great addition! Thanks for the new recipe idea :)
