    Yummy! Couldn't really taste the bananas, they just made it really moist. Very brownie-like cake, not surprising with all the sugar 👍. Delicious warm with ice cream. I used 190g flour and 30g of cocoa to turn it into a chocolate chocolate chip banana cake. I also used a 29 x 34 cm roasting tin as that was the closest I had. Same cooking time and very little taste of roast chicken!  -  23 Jun 2017


    Really light cake. Next time will try it with sultanas as I bet that would be a good alternative to chocolate chips  -  19 Jan 2015
