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)
