    • Banana and chocolate cake

      Banana and chocolate cake

      This classic banana cake recipe adds dark chocolate chunks to the mix for an even sweeter bake. It takes 1hr and 15 mins to cook and costs hardly anything at all to make. For the banana flavour you need 4 small bananas that are very ripe (brown and soft). These are then peeled and mashed and added to the mix. If youíre not a fan of dark chocolate you could replace the chunks with milk or white chocolate instead for a different spin on the recipe. Leave to cool on a wire wrack and serve with cream or warm with custard.
