Chocolate Banana Cake


1 cup mashed bananas
1/4 cup cream or sour cream or yoghurt
175g butter, softened
170g caster sugar
2 large eggs, lighted beaten
310g plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 tbsp boiling water

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.
  • Grease a 21cm bundt pan with melted butter mixed with a little flour.
  • Combine mashed bananas with cream until blended.  Set aside.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda into a bowl and whisk to blend.
  • Mix cocoa powder and boiling water into a paste.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy (this will take about 4 -5 minutes).  Then gradually add in eggs in 3 additions.  Beat until combined.
  • Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture with half the combined cream and banana mixture.  Repeat the process, ending with the flour mixture.  
  • Place half of the mixture into a separate bowl, stir in cocoa paste.
