This chocolate banana cake with the twist of choc chips is a real hit.  It is a little naughty so everything in moderation… yeah right!!   You may like to ice it with chocolate icing using our basic icing recipe.  It will store well in an airtight container for 3-4 days, but will freeze well too (iced and all).

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!
