Banana chocolate loaf and an interesting food!!
This cake was a result of a ripe banana which is not a frequent thing at our place as we all love bananas and it gets over before it even starts riping. So this time, when I had one I decided to bake a cake as it was a long time I made a banana cake. I have tried an eggless cake and one with eggs before. So this time, I decided to combine banana and chocolate. I have used an egg and also flax seeds powder and the result was beyond expectations. The cake was soft and chewy like all banana cakes and moist to a very proper extent and had a very nice banana flavour. The combination of chocolate and banana was just awesome. So do try this one when you have a ripe banana , you will love it!!!
- Combine flour, flax seed powder , cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl and keep aside.
- Now in another bowl , whisk together the egg and sugar.
- Add the mashed banana followed by the oil and mix well.
- Now fold in the flour mixture and combine to form a uniform batter. Pour the batter in well greased loaf pan, preferably lined with parchment paper. Bake this in a preheated oven at 180c for 40 -45 minutes. Cool the cake well in the pan itself and then invert it on a serving plate. Slice the cake and serve.
Yesterday, we had twist potatoes at an exhibition. I am not sure if everyone is aware of this but it was quite interesting and so I thought of sharing with you all in case you have not seen this before. The potato is sliced with a special cutter and twisted around a skewer. This is fried and then sprinkled with cheese or some other flavour.
