Chocolate Banana Cake


May our deeds attract Allah's love, Noor & Barakah so that our lives may be filled with peace, happiness & freedom from any calamity...
Jummah Mubarak!

Blog hopping is not healthy. At least not to me! The more I blog hop, the thicker my printouts would be. The thicker the printouts, the more I want to experiment in the kitchen. The more I experiment in the kitchen, the more I'll eat. The more I eat, the more I'll become lazy. The lazier I become, will create great disaster in the ironing room as the ironing basket will be overflowed with crumpled clothes....noooooooooo......

Bisikan negatif.....
Suara : Ala senang je ma, hantar je kat laundry suruh diorang iron...
Mama : Ha ah, betul gak tu.... I'm off to the Laundry now......
Mmmm, what on earth am I blabbering about now. Well, blame it on the headache that's been bothering me...oh no, not the headache alone, blame it on me for sleeping late yesterday night... err..morning.... shhhhh don't tell Mr Hubby... shhhhh....

Anyway, I've tried a lot few recipes these couple of days. Some new recipe leads to another new recipe. You'll know what I mean when I post the recipes in my future entries. As for today, I am going to share with you the lovely Chocolate Banana Cake which I took from Joy of Baking dot com . Even without the topping, the taste of the cake is marvelous enough. Thanks to Stephanie and her Best Summer Weekends Cookbook for making this cake possible. Allow me to re-post (and edit according to what I did) the recipe here, so that many others could try it out...thank you...


CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE
Source : Joy of Baking

Ingredients :

2 cups (400 grams) granulated white sugar
1 3/4 cups (245 grams) all-purpose flour
3/4 cup (75 grams) cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium sized bananas)
1 cup (240 ml) warm water
1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
1/2 cup (120 ml) safflower or canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence

Method :

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven.
2. Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, a 9 x 13 inch (23 x 33 cm) pan. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
4. In another large bowl, whisk together the eggs, mashed bananas, water, milk, oil, and vanilla extract.
5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir, or whisk, until combined. You will notice that the batter is quite thin.
6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
7. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. When completely cooled, frost with the Ganache.


CHOCOLATE GANACHE FROSTING (I didn't do this but just for my notes, I'll just paste it here as well)

8 ounces (227 grams) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup (180 ml) heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon (14 gram) unsalted butter

Garnish : (optional)
Dried banana chips

Method :

Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized stainless steel, or heatproof bowl. Set aside. Heat the cream and butter in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth. When Ganache has completely cooled, beat until soft and fluffy. Then spread the frosting on top of the cake. Can garnish with dried banana chips.



Have a nice and safe weekend ahead everyone.
To the kids, Happy Holidays and stay out of trouble. Don't be mischievous!
To the Form 5 students, all the best in your SPM!
