Chocolate Banana Cake

This is adapted from a recipe for banana cake. I'm not overly keen on plain banana cake - and nor are The Family. The simple addition of some cocoa to turn it into chocolate banana cake makes all the difference.

Chocolate Banana Cake
Makes 2 loaves

2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp bicarb soda
pinch salt
2 beaten eggs
395g tin condensed milk
50g melted butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Line two 21cmx11cm loaf tins with baking paper (or equivalent).
  • Combine flour, cocoa, salt and soda in a bowl.
  • Beat eggs, condensed milk, butter, syrup, vanilla and banana in a separate bowl.
  • Add wet mixture to dry, and combine thoroughly.
  • Spoon into the tins. Bake for 50-55 minutes.

This was a lovely moist cake, and went down well.
