Chocolate Banana Snacking Cake Recipe


There are dozens of recipes to make when there are overripe bananas in the kitchen, but one of my favorite recipes using bananas is an easy snacking cake that can be served warm. The recipe is loosely adapted from one found in a favorite cookbook, Jane Green’s Good Taste, which I highly recommend; I have changed a few things, and it has become a favorite at our house. It can be put together in about 15 minutes using ingredients that are most likely already on your pantry shelves or in your refrigerator; it bakes while you’re eating dinner, and it will be ready to serve as soon as it’s time for dessert. Good vanilla ice cream isn’t necessary, but it is really good with this cake, as is sweetened real (no frozen garbage) whipped cream.
