Banana Bread Cake with Chocolate Frosting Filling

Traditionally (well Hollywood movie traditionally) when a friend has a baby, you turn up with a frozen lasagna or something similar so that they do not have to cook etc. I don’t do that, I take them cake. In fact I take Banana Bread Cake with Chocolate Frosting Filling and this is how I made it:

Ingredients

  • 100g of Sugar
  • 200g of Butter
  • 150g of Flour
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1tbsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 75g of Icing Sugar
  • 25g of Cocoa

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C fan and grease your cake tin reading for later
  2. Start of by creaming the sugar and 100g of the butter together in a large bowl
  3. Once smooth sieve in the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda gradually and mix until your mixture is crumbly
  4. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract and combine thoroughly
  5. In a separate bowl mash the bananas with a fork then add to your cake mixture
  6. You can then pour the mixture in your cake tin and bake in the oven for 40/45 minutes. It is best to use a cake tester to check when it is cooked through, by sticking it into the cake and seeing if it comes out clean, when it does, it is ready
  7. Once the cake is ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool
  8. When the cake has cooled you can start on the filling
  9. Add the remaining butter, icing sugar and cocoa to a bowl and mix until combined and smooth
  10. The cut your cake into two through the middle (I find a knife longer than the width of the cake and kneeling until eye level helps you cut it evenly)
  11. Smear the frosting across the base of the cake, leave it thicker in the middle so it can smoodge (is that a word?) to the edges when you pop the top back on and your ready to go!

This Banana Bread Cake with Chocolate Frosting Filling was a great twist on banana bread as you are basically baking it in a different shape and adding chocolate frosting… It couldn’t hurt right?

Which cake recipes have you added your own twist too?
