Serves: 8

Prep: 20 minutes

Cook: 40 minutes

You’ll need: 10 inch springform cake pan, greased



180g Butter, softened

190g Caster Sugar

3 Eggs

3 ripped bananas, mashed

340g Plain Flour

1½ tsp bicarbonate soda dissolved in 3 tsp hot milk

1½ tsp baking powder

200g dark/bittersweet/milk chocolate, chopped, plus extra to decorate

250 ml double cream


Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. 

Put the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, and beat with a wooden spoon or electric whisk until all the sugar has been incorporated and the mixture is pale.

Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition to make sure it’s well incorporated.

Add the mashed bananas, then the dissolved soda mixture and mix well.

Add the flour and baking powder, folding it all in with a spoon until you have a homogeneous mixture. Fold in the chocolate.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake for 40 minutes, or until skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan.

Just before you are ready to serve, beat the cream to soft peaks and spread over the top of the cooled cake.

Decorate with greated and shaved chocolate.
