Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 23x33cm or similar sized tin. Sieve together the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then add the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Mix to combine.
Pour batter into the prepared tin. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
Spread whipped cream over cooled cake and place sliced bananas on top. Store in refrigerator.
