Marbled Banana Cake

Here you have a super easy recipe to make a delicious Marbled banana Cake, i hope you like it! It’s perfect all year around.

  • 2 ¼ cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 ¼ cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Plain Yogurt
  • 4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 3 ripe Bananas
  • 1 large Egg
  • ¾ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (+ more for decoration)
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 8 x 8 in baking pan (greased and floured)

Preheat the oven to 350ºF

Combine the flour with the baking powder and the salt, stir well and set aside.

Mash the banana until you get a soft puree. Set aside.

Melt the semi sweet chocolate chips, you can either melt them in the microwave or on the stove.  (In the microwave it will take around 90 seconds, stirring them every 30 seconds.) Once they are melted, set them aside.

With an electric mixer, on medium speed, mix the brown sugar with the butter until you get a creamy grainy paste, it will take about 2 or 3 minutes.  Then add in one egg, and mix for another 30 seconds until the egg is well beaten with the rest of the ingredients. After that add in the yogurt and mashed bananas, mix for another 30 seconds until everything is well combined.  Reduce the speed, and slowly add in the flour mixture. Continue to stir on low until everything is combined. Do not over mix it. Once the batter is done, remove it from the mixer.

Add in the melted chocolate into the batter mixture, and slowly, gently fold it in with the batter, do not over mix it, you just want the batter to get a marbled pattern. Once it’s done, pour it into a prepare pan. (the pan is greased with butter and floured.)

Bake at 350ºF for 45 - 55 minutes or until the cake is done. (You will know the cake is ready when you insert a toothpick right into the center of the cake and it comes out with a bit of breadcrumbs!) Once the cake is done, let it cool down in the pan for 30 minutes. Then transfer it to a plate.

I'm going to ice the surface of the cake with more melted chocolate, it’ just a very thin layer of melted chocolate, then sprinkle it with mini semisweet chocolate  chips!

And that’s it.  Enjoy!
