Banana & chocolate cake

II didn't have the heart to throw away 2 bananas which were over ripen. I searched for the banana cake recipe on the Internet and made some changes like adding cocoa powder n walnuts to it & baked a chocolate & banana cake. My kids loved it. 


  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup butter, ( melted )
  • 3 tsp of cocoa powder
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1½ tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1½ cup of white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1¼ cup of banana purée made in blender to remove lumps


  • Heat oven to 180ºC
  • Dry roast the walnuts n keep then aside. After they cool roughly chop them. 
  • In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients - flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, eggs  & vanilla until light and fluffy. Incorporate banana purée.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the large bowl. Also add the walnuts. Transfer the batter to a baking tray which is greased with butter. 
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
