This one is from my notebook days. Those were the days when we just noted down interesting recipes in a notebook, didn’t bother about sources and acknowledgements, life was so much simpler and so on and so forth. If any of you find the source of this recipe, please let me know, I would really like to thank the person for this super easy, super moist and super yummy chocolate banana cakes.

I have repeated this so many times and each time it turns out just perfect and gets over in half an hour. Here you go….

Flour – 1 3/4 cup
Sugar – 2 cups
Cocoa powder – 3/4 cup
Baking powder – 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda – 1 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp

Sift alll the above together

Bananas, crushed – 1 cup (robusta is best , 2 medium sized would do. Make sure it is really really ripe, super soft and at that stage where the skin is almost turning black.
Eggs – 2

Beat the above two together

Warm water – 1 cup
Milk – 1/2 cup
Sun flower oil – 1/ cup
Vanilla essence – 1 1/2 tsp

Add these ingredients to the banana egg mix and beat well.

Add the dry ingredients in batches mixing gently

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180C for 30-35 minutes.

Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack and cool.
