  • First of all you can make this recipe as it is by that I mean combine these ingredients in 1 bowl or you can make 2 separate batches one with chocolate, one with banana and mix to get this colour difference in the cake.
  • Even if you decide to make this recipe in just 1 bowl or 2 bowls, it's quite simple.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, 15 minutes prior to baking.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder in the bowl then add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Add the liquid ingredients, mashed banana and fold.
  • You can use any kind of bowl to bake it, depending on what you're looking for. If you want a thick layer of cake, use a smaller bowl if you want a think cake like I did, use a bigger one, totally up to you.
  • Cook the cake until the toothpick comes out clear mine took around 25 minutes, depending on your bowl's size this will change.
  • Then let it cool down then cut it into sizes, Pour some powdered sugar on top, and you are done.
  • You can add nuts or white/dark chocolate chips or whatever basically to this recipe and add more sugar if you want a sweeter cake, totally up to you. But I prefer it this way, I'm not a fan of really sweet desserts so -- You can remove the banana and make it a chocolate cake as well but if you're going to do that double the amount of the cocoa powder.
  • Enjoy!

I love Asian cuisine and Mediterranean. I usually make a lot of noodles, ramen, and pasta. I know doesn't sound so healthy, but yummy. I have recently turned kind-of vegan, I still enjoy a sushi time to time. Veganeque? I don't know. I love tea and coffee and any kind of hot beverage basically and I am all about simple and lazy recipes.
