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.
This recipe came about because I had over-ripe bananas and near to expiry date ricotta cheese. I am not one to waste so decided since I make cakes with both ricotta and banana why not both? The cake is not as light as a sponge, nor is it as heavy as a banana bread. it smells divine and can be served either with a chocolate ganache filling and / or topping, or with a chocolate crème anglais sauce (custard). It is really popular with my children who have to suffer the task of tasters!
