Choco-Banana Cake

Sometimes I have leftover bananas and I make the traditional banana cake, but I thought adding a little chocolate will be interesting, this is a very easy cake and you can enjoy it anytime

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal (grounded)
4Tbs. melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp vanilla 
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup mashed bananas
3/4 cup chocolate ganache if desired for decoration

Preheat oven to 350F.
grease and line parchment , you can use a rectangle mold or any you like.

In a large mixing bowl , sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and grounded oatmeal.

In a small mixing bowl combine the butter, milk, eggs , banana and finally the chocolate chips.

Combine both mixtures, do not overmix.

Pour batter into mold

Bake until lightly golden, and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 min.

Pour some chocolate ganache over it, I grounded a chocolate cookie bar and just made a little decorations over it, . hope you like it, simple and delicious.

  1. Hi Magali. I am a first time visitor. Very cool blog. Banana bread is cool by itself (toasted and with cream cheese) but adding chocolate sounds great. Chocolate is a friend to many foods! But this banana bread reminds me of how the season has fallen upon us of non stop eating if all these awesome desserts that should last until January 2012! Oh my.
    I write a blog about food too but with my musings on life and relationships. Please visit when you get a chance.
