Got any of those old bananas lying around in the kitchen???
This chocolate banana cake recipe is the yummiest way to use up those rejected bananas!!
This Chocolate banana cake recipe is our family favourite! Its super tasty and moist plus it’s really easy to make!
I just whizz up all of the ingredients in the food processor or cake mixer!
We love to eat this Chocolate Banana cake warm out of the oven and it’s so good you don’t even need to ice it but I have added a chocolate frosting (chocolate buttercream) icing if you feel like icing it!
Please note you do not have to bake this Chocolate Banana cake in a ring tin, a 20cm round springform tin works perfectly! And feel free to make this recipe into Chocolate Banana muffins!
I have also shared the Chocolate Banana sheet cake recipe here.
