Chocolate and banana cake | Kukskitchen

Last few days pf school year is fun-packed and involves a lot of yummy food. I was very quick in offering to bake for every occasion possible in my little one's school: be it his last day party or garden picnic. I ended up making a chocolate and banana cake for one of them and used the recipe to make muffins for the garden picnic along with black forest berry and whit chocolate muffins. They went down well.

They are a good way to get kids eat fruits.


Chocolate and banana cake

2- Plain flour - 240g

    Baking soda -  1 1/2 tsp
    Salt - 1/2 tsp
3- Milk - 120ml
    Warm water - 1 cup
    Eggs - 2
    Oil - 120ml

1.Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place rack in the center of the oven. Butter and flour a pan (23 x 33 cm) .
2. In a large bowl sift  the (2). Set aside.
3. In another large bowl, whisk together the (3) and mashed bananas. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir/whisk, until combined.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
5. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Butter cream frosting :

Butter, softened - 140g

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
