Double chocolate chip banana cake with chocolate icing and garnished with fresh raspberries, icing sugar and cocoa powder.

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (if not ripe, add 1 tbsp of skim milk for moisture)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine banana, sugar, egg and oil.

2. In another bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour.

3. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Once mixed, add in chocolate chips. Combine thoroughly.

4. Grease a baking dish (8 by 9.5 inch) with oil and then coat with a light layer of flour.

5. Pour cake mixture in and bake for 350º for 20 to 25 minutes or until the cake separates from the sides of the baking dish.

6. Let cool and decorate as you choose. Our cake was decorated with chocolate icing, a dusting of cocoa powder and icing sugar, and garnished with fresh raspberries.

The above cake creation was inspired by the following double chocolate banana muffin recipe. Thank you to Lillian for making the cake. Stay tuned next week for another “double” recipe!
