As far as banana and chocolate cakes go, this is one of my all-time favourites.

When I baked this wonderful banana chocolate cake recipe for some friends, one said to me: “Shouldn’t you call it a chocolate and banana cake?”

We couldn’t agree on the right term, but we did agree it tasted magnificent.

No matter what you call this cake, you are sure to savour the perfect balance of deep and rich flavours.

It’s also an easy chocolate banana cake recipe to follow – or should that be banana chocolate cake recipe.

Who cares. Just thank the very talented Chicho’s Kitchen for making it. And yes, she calls it a Chocolate Banana Cake.
