Based on lots of different recipes…

  • 1 cup sweet glutinous rice (wash first, tastes cleaner)
  • 4 cup water
  • 4 tablea tablets
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder or 1/4 tsp espresso powder (very optional, makes the chocolate flavor darker)

Cook all together on low heat until done. Serve with condensed milk.

Makes 4 servings.

Choco Banana Cake

  • 1/2c mashed very ripe bananas (approx 4)
  • 1c sour cream
  • 1 3/4c AP flour
  • 2/3c cocoa powder
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7oz room temp unsalted butter
  • 1.5 c sugar
  • 3 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350F (or 325F on my toaster), butter and flour a 10c bund and sift with cocoa powder.

Beat the butter and sugar together until pale, then add the eggs one at a time. Slowly add half the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add banana and sour cream, then the remainder of the flour.

Pour into the pan, smooth the surface and bake for 55-60 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.

Allow to cool for ten minutes, then invert onto a wire rack.

Glaze with chocolate glaze if desired. (Google that)
