Chocolate and Banana cake

Hello again. 
I'm back with a recipe for you to try. It's a chocolate banana cake or a banana chocolate cake. It's basically a chocolate cake but sweetened with bananas. I wasn't sure if it would work but it did. I had 4 black bananas which I didn't want to throw out, plus I wanted chocolate cake!

The cake itself is sweet but not very, so I do recommend you use the icing or your own icing. But with the icing it's perfect. 


You will need:
4 very ripe bananas 
200 gm spelt flour or regular flour
75 gm coconut oil, melted
200 ml milk
2 eggs, beaten
40gm Cocoa powder
1tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 180C. Mash the bananas well and place in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour the mixture into a greased or lined cake tin. Bake for approx 30-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack.

While that's cooling, make your icing. 
Mix 100gm salted butter with 6 tablespoons rice malt syrup and 3 tablespoons cocoa powder over a low heat in a saucepan. Once melted and silky leave to cool. When cold and a fudgey texture, whip
with your electric beaters until light and fluffy. Ice the top and sides of your cooled cake.


If your swimming in ripe bananas, Lunchlady has a almost rotten banana cake with cream cheese icing recipe up on her blog.
