Chocolate Banana Cake

Long weekend has started and before HE was home, I wanted to make something special. Recently, I did not bake anything and thought to make the cake. No milk, egg or condensed milk, this could not be any simpler. Plus, I used ripe banana to replace sugar quantity. Initially I thought, using water instead of milk would make the cake dry, but that is not the case. It came out perfectly soft and moist.

Makes one 9” cake
Preparation Time: 15 Minute
Cooking Time: 45 Minute

2 cup all purpose flour
1 and 1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1and ½ tsp baking soda
¼ cup melted unsalted butter
1 cup hot water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mashed banana (about 1 and ½ ripe banana)
2 walnuts, roughly chopped (Optional)

1. Grease the baking tray and pre-heat oven at 350 F for about 8-10 minute
2. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa and baking powder and keep them aside
3. Gradually add wet ingredients – water, butter and vanilla
4. Make banana puree with little water and add to flour mixture
5. Whisk thoroughly and pour batter to baking tray
6. After 10 minutes, add chopped walnuts
7. Bake about total 40-45 minute, until toothpick comes out clean
8. After 10-15 minute, take out the cake out of tray and let it cool down on cooling rack for 30-40 minute
9. Cut into pieces and refrigerate
