For banana cake, there are a couple of things that help it to turn out really well. First, ensure that your bananas are really, really, ripe. The skins should be black, and the fruit very soft. You can even ripen the bananas and then freeze them. Be sure to peel the skin and chop them up before you put them in the freezer or it will make a real mess when you pull them out. Mash most of the banana quite well, even putting most of it in the blender, but leave some of the banana in chunks for great flavor and texture in the cake. This recipe uses chocolate. Consider using two different kinds of chocolate, such as a milk chocolate and a bitter or semi-sweet chocolate. The different levels of chocolate add real taste to the cake.
This is an easy to make cake that lightens things up by using applesauce instead of oil, an increasingly common choice to lower the fat levels in sweet foods. This dish also uses brown sugar, which helps to underscore the banana and chocolate flavor. This is a big cake that is also easy and economical to make, loaded with plenty of banana and chocolate goodness, and that your family will really enjoy. Try it soon, won’t you?
