Triple Chocolate Banana Cake

Yum

I wanted to bake something easy, as a treat for the girls and the husband. Banana cakes / breads have always been a winner in the Kay household. Easy to make, plus it always turns out moist, and deliciously good. Here are some of my previous banana bakes:

  1. Spongy Banana Cake
  2. Chia Seeds Banana Bread
  3. Banana Honey Chia Cake
  4. Moist Banana and Chocolate Chips Bread
  5. Chocolate Malt Avocado Banana Bread
  6. Healthy Wholemeal Banana Chocolate Bread

At first, I was thinking of making a chocolate pound cake. However, I didn’t want to use that much butter, and the ripened bananas on the counter seems to be calling out my name, begging to be used. Didn’t take much persuading to decide of making this recipe. Super moist banana bread with tonnes of melted chocolate with each bite. So so sinfully good, I tell you! And easy to make to0! 

I made a double batch of ganache that day and I didn’t want it to go to waste. So I baked another batch for my helper’s cousin in a 7 inch cake tin, divided it so I got 2 layers. Iced the middle with Nutella, layered sliced bananas, then poured ganache over the cake, and garnished it with some chopped walnuts. Simple Chocolate Nutella Banana Cake done. πŸ™‚
