Chocolate Banana Cake

It is not that I’m getting lazy in baking but I just don’t have the opportunity to do so recently…Sarah always go to bed late; and yesterday she fell asleep early so it’s my baking time again!

I’ve chosen this recipe because I have bought a bar of chocolate and cocoa powder some time ago but never use it. Furthermore, there is also a banana sitting inside the freezer so I guess this recipe suits me best.


I am quite satisfied with the outcome. My cake no longer has crispy topping thanks to the advices from my blogger friends. This time I have reduced the baking time.

The cake does not have much banana taste either because I only used one. I will definitely use more next time.

I was surprised when Sarah asked for the cake when she saw me sharing it with my neighbour. This is her very first time eating the cake I bake, so happy!

Hi, I really admire all of you mummies can bake so well. My problem is I got no basic in baking cakes BUT I love to eat cakes. I have a conventional oven, a packet of self raising flour. Now what should I do to start the ball rolling. Pls advise : desperado.. :D

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Sure sure...I can post some to you, but the cake surely have very dry texture. So the next time I meet you, I bake the cake again ya. Hehe.

You also can do that. Waiting for your cake. :-)

yes, you heard me right, banana in the freezer. Tats how I store the unfinished banana. I peel off the skin and store it in a tupperware, and only use it for baking cake.
This is a great tips from my fren.
Hehe, is really a great great thing when I saw Sarah pointed to the cake and asked for a bite.

slavemom said...

Wah... u so rajin lah to bake after Sarah goes to sleep at nite. Now that Sarah knows how yummy mummy's cakes r, she'll be asking for more whenever u bake from now on. ;)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Actually I love baking after I have bake my first cake. Altho it is not so successful but it is a fun thing mixing all the ingredients together.
I will be very happy if she continue support mommy in terms of eating the cake. Hehe.

Kristie said...

Joanne, baking is all about passion and not feeling stressed abt it, if u feel tension, then no point baking lor... for me it is a way to destress! :) Do try out the recipe when the occasion arises, u bake well too :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

You have got the point Kristie. Baking and Cooking are the same, if do these without heart and passion, then the food become tasteless...

Kristie said...

yes Joanne, must cook with love, lots of it :)
