About this recipe: Got some older bananas that need using up but want a change from the usual? This really really yummy recipe is one I modified from a plain banana cake and it is now so popular it gets requested all the time. Best of all it can be done with ease in a food processor, so it's also really fast to make for a picnic or sudden guests! Also kids love it, it's got chocolate in it! Doesn't need icing or buttering, is plenty good on its own.
I made this last night, it was super easy and I loved it. I didn't add any nuts, and it is still gorgeous. It is just as nice hot as cold, I had it hot last night with ice cream, and today I had it cold with a cup of coffee. Both ways yummy. This is the first cake I ever made and I will certainly be using it again. Really easy, thanks so much - 23 Apr 2010
followed the recipe as above, but put the mixture in individual cupcake cases and reduced the time in oven. turned out lovely, not as heavy as another banana cake i've tried making. - 11 Jul 2011
