This was one of my favourite cakes as a child and now I bake it for my daughters. It isn't a rich chocolaty cake, but rather a banana cake with a touch of chocolate and aromatic ground cloves and cinnamon. It is excellent topped with your favourite chocolate ganache or icing.
I made this cake as I was getting homesick for something 'English' and it turned out fabulous! It stayed moist for days and was lovely with a chocolate ganache - 17 Sep 2013
Gorgeous cake! I did not have ground cloves ,but I used mixed spice instead and this cake was great! I also used a square tin and the filling was too much for the tin so I spooned 8 cup cakes and baked them first! also delicious!without icing! - 05 Nov 2012
