Chocolate Chip Banana Cake with Banana Cream for #SundaySupper

Feb 10, 2013 by

Welcome to the Valentine’s edition of #SundaySupper. Today we are sharing things we prepare for our loved ones. Our fabulous host is none other than Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! I’m looking forward to seeing all the wonderful main dishes, desserts and drinks being shared today!

My family loves sweet treats. Because of this, I try to substitute and lighten things up a bit or just keep it really simple. I love cooking and baking for them. Its one sure way that I can express my love for them. I knew exactly what I was going to make for today’s #SundaySupper. My kids ask for this cake often enough ever since I made it for the first time a few weeks ago. My baby girl can probably list the ingredients because she has been right there beside me each time I have made it. I’ve even offered it as a gift to a gathering that we went to recently. Total win. Simplicity at its very best.

Originally I was planning to post Bailey’s Banana Cream but it didn’t taste the same as how I did it the first time. So since I clearly haven’t perfected it, I will stick with the Banana Cream. It is the perfect complement to the Banana Cake. This recipe is from my very special book, A Real Taste of Jamaica by Enid Donaldson. There is absolutely no way that bananas should ever go to waste. Not with recipes like this one.

Instructions

  12. Add mashed banana and vanilla, then mix to combine
  13. Add the flour mixture into the banana mixture and mix just until combined. Finish combining by hand with a spoon if needed.
  14. Fold in the chocolate chips
  15. Bake for 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean
  16. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  17. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before slicing.

I didn’t change much when it came to the ingredients. I added a pinch of cardamom – just because. For the Banana Cream I replaced nutmeg with allspice. Nutmeg isn’t my favourite. I’ll use it when I have to but for this recipe, the allspice was a lovely addition.

The chocolate chips are an additional treat for this recipe. By itself, it is simply wonderful. The aroma while it is baking is heavenly. Once baked, you’ll find yourself wanting more and more. I speak from personal experience. The banana adds such rich moisture to this cake.

I was bringing desert over to a friend’s house recently. I wanted to dress up this sweet wonderful cake. I doubled the recipe and split the batter. Added chocolate chips to one half and left the other one plain. I decorated the plain cake with slices of banana. Oh, how I love a pretty cake. This cake goes well with Vanilla Ice Cream, of course.

The cream was really lovely. I wondered at first if Banana Cream with Banana Cake would be too much banana. Well, the answer was no. It wasn’t. It was awesome. My kids loved it and have grown to expect it whenever I make this cake. I think I will have to break them out of that expectation.

I just can’t get enough of this cream! I really should figure out the Bailey’s version. I must!!!

  18. This might be a banana bake that I was waiting for. It sounds really good. Does 1 1/4 banana enough for this size cake to taste banana? I use 3 bananas for my banana bread but I know the texture is a bit different from a cake and bread…I want to make my cake to be fluffy and not heavy. I will give this a try once my banana (I just bought) is ripe!
    Nami | Just One Cookbook recently posted..Almond CookiesMy Profile

    • Hi Nami! Absolutely – it makes a small cake so I think the most you could use is 1-1/2 Bananas. I doubled the recipe and used 2-1/2 and it was a good texture for me (for 2 X 8-inch cakes). It wasn’t heavy for my taste. I’m sure it depends on the size of the banana too. Mine were medium sized. A single banana didn’t do it for me, which is why I added a bit more :-) I hope you get to make this banana cake soon!

  21. Nope, there can definitely never be too much banana. This cake looks so delicious – so fluffy, moist and studded with chocolate. I love the cake you made with the banana slices on top – so pretty! I’ve never had banana cream before but it sounds delicious, like something I’d sip out of a cup (I’m not ashamed to admit that!). Lovely post, Lyn.
