Chocolate and Banana Cake


For the cake

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder vanilla
  • 1 dessertspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa 
  • 2 1/2 cup of all purpose flour

For the sauce 

  • 2 bars of dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk


Crush eggs, banana and sugar in a rondo and add milk, oil and vanilla extract, whisk. Add cacao and whisk again. To add flour first mix baking powder and flour in a bowl and add to the banana mixture with the help of a strainer.This will make baking powder spread over the cake evenly and rise better.  

Preheat oven to 350 F and bake the cake for 45 minutes. To understand that if the cake is cooked, you can stick a toothpick to the cake, if it is clean then your cake is ready. If it has still some dough on it, you need to bake your cake more.

For the sauce; put the milk in a sauce pan and place on medium heat. Add sugar, cacao and flour, stir well. Lastly add little pieces of chocolate bars and wait until they melt.

After you take the cake from the oven, wait until it gets cold then turn it upside down and take it out from pan and pour the sauce on it.

Note: you can make the cake in any shape you want, such as loaf, muffin..
