This week I again had overly ripe bananas (I had a few leftover bananas after baking banana-walnut bread last week). A few months ago I made oatmeal-banana-chocolate chip muffins and remembered the banana-chocolate combo was a killer... so guess what? I went on to make the best banana-chocolate chip cake ever (I am not sure the pics convey this but believe me it's too good).
I found the recipe here and replicated it with a bit more banana and some more chocolate. It is too easy to bake so make sure you and your friends are hungry when you make it :-) This banana-chocolate chip cake is dense, moist, and insanely good... If you love bananas and chocolate, this recipe is for you. Let me know how you like it! (I still dream of it...)
Recipe for a Bundt cake:
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
230 g butter (room T)
4.8 dl sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
7.2 dl flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2.4 dl sour cream or yoghurt
200 g bittersweet chocolate
Cream the butter (whip it). Add sugar and whip more, until well incorporated. Add eggs one by one, beating in between each one. Add vanilla extract and mix. Add mashed bananas and mix on low speed.
Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl (except for chocolate). Add 1/2 of dry ingredients to wet mix and mix on low speed. Add sour cream/yoghurt, mix, and finally add the other 1/2 of dry ingredients and mix.
Chop up chocolate into chips and fold in. Transfer the dough into a prepared Bundt cake form and bake approx. 1h10 at 175 C.
