Chocolate Banana Swirl Cake


Bake this last week actually, straight after the kids finished their exams..hahaha..cause really missed baking..
this time tried this recipe from Aunty Yochana. I adjusted some to suits my taste..didnt add the base ingredients as my kids dont like walnuts in their cake.. When making this my advice is to really beat the sugar and butter to really creamy and pale to get that soft, melt in your mouth cake!..

Remember too, that since the cake uses banana in the ingredients, the quantity of sugar is also important, of course up to your preference lah ya...as for me 185g that I used, Mr Hubby said it was still quite sweet..so maybe next time I will use 175g?..Apa2 pun this cake meets my expectations!..I like it.

ps:- For Lin, this is the cake that I passed it to you the other day..only today then I updated here!..haha
Glad you like it, and more cakes to be shared if there are enough for everyone!..
