Banana Chocolate Cake

, , , , ,

Soft, moist, chocolaty,… Simply delicious and the great thing about it: you don’t even need an electric mixer to make this Banana Chocolate Cake.

I’m not really a fan of banana cake or bread, but this Banana Chocolate Cake tastes really good!

This cake is great for using up overripe bananas, plus it’s very quick to prepare.

Some would say banana chocolate bread, but for me it’s definitely a cake. 🙂
