Ingredients

For the cake:

    Wet ingredients:

    • 1 quantity egg
    • 1/4 cup oil
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup warm water
    • 1 medium banana
    • 1 tsp vanilla essence

    Dry ingredients:

    • 1 cup flour
    • 0.8 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp baking powder

    For the frosting:

    • 0.8 cup icing sugar
    • 100 gms butter
    • 100 gms dark chocolate
    • 1 tsp vanilla essence

    Instructions

    For the cake:

    • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius and line a cake tin with butter paper or brush it with some oil.
    • Whisk the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately. Sieve the dry ingredients onto another bowl. Sieving ensures that more air gets trapped and the end result is a fluffier cake.
    • Combine the wet and the dry ingredients and whisk until you achieve a smooth consistency.
    • Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake it for 25 mins or until a tooth pick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

    For the frosting:

    • Melt the chocolate in a bowl by placing it over a saucepan of boiling water. Once melted, take it off the heat and let it cool down to room temperature.
    • Using a stand or a hand mixer, beat the butter until it is smooth.
    • Add the sugar and beat it further, until the mixture turns light and fluffy. 
    • Add the chocolate sauce and the vanilla essence and beat until the chocolate has mixed into the mixture and the mixture is smooth.

    For the assembly:

    • Rest the cake on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Spread the frosting over the cake and top it with some choco-chips or fresh bananas.
