Its my day off today, on a fine autumn day. I was craving for something sweet, maybe with banana and chocolate. Banana chocolate cake, chocolate peanut butter cookies, or something along that line. So a quick google search brought me to this website which is a recipe of a Banana cake with Chocolate and Muscovado by Nigel Slater.
I am never good at following recipes.. I made it my own, partly because i didn't have enough butter and i don't have Muscovado sugar. So, i substituted the butter with butter + coconut oil and Muscovado sugar with coconut sugar, and i also added some coconut flavouring (together with the vanilla essence) into the banana mixture to go with the coconut themed changes.
|Cream the butter/coconut oil with some coconut sugar|
|Banana mushed with fork with a bit of sugar, vanilla and coconut essence|
|Mix the two mixture together and spoon the flour one spoon at a time|
|mmm... dark chocolate pieces|
|stick it in the oven|
|middle of the oven|
35 minutes in the oven 180 degrees Celcius
smells amazing.. the banana and coconut smell wafting in the kitchen
|layer no 1 took 30 minutes|
|chocolate ganache between the 2 layer and a sprinkle of icing sugar on top|
|Forgot to put banana inside so it ended on the outside..|
Now its time to wait for the Le BF to come so that i can cut into this delice and try it!! Will let you know how it taste! Enjoy
