Banana Chocolate Bottom Square Cake.


I would like to give a thumbs up for this.

It’s definitely a keeper!

The combination of bananas and chocolate are perfect match and they make cake absolutely delicious.   The cake was topped up with chocolate chips and walnuts and “Wow!” It’s so pretty and really made it so hard to resist!!

I have been seeing this cake everywhere in the internet.  Therefore I decided to give it a try.

The banana fragrant was not as strong as my Banana Chocolate Chips Cake and the texture was a bit dry and crumbly.  Not sure it is because of the cocoa powder that had covered up the banana aroma and also caused it to dry…

Anyway, you can assure that nothing will go wrong when chocolate and banana meets.  These 2 are a perfect match!

If I’ll to bake this again, I’ll increase the amount of milk to 3-4 tbsp on the chocolate batter as I prefer it to be moister.

As I modified the recipes coming from various sources and have forgotten exactly this recipe was adopted from where.

Here goes my modified recipe.
