Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake Recipe

Waking up to six slightly brown bananas today - almost past expiration - inspired me to do something with them other than put them in the compost pot. I ate one with breakfast as usual and decided a dessert needs to be created. Regular cakes need to be frosted; Bundt cakes can do with a little drizzle or just a shake of confectionery sugar. No brainer - a Bundt cake will be in the making. This recipe is really a quick and simple recipe for such a decadent desert....and the ingredients most often are stocked in the pantry. On another note, following this recipe I'll suggest some useful ways to use your banana peels and your egg shells.


1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp instant coffee (optional)
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup banana (very ripe & mashed - about 3)
1 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven: 350 F degrees

Grease/spray Bundt pan and lightly dust with a little cocoa powder.

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.

Cream butter, add sugar and eggs and mix well.

Add bananas and mix briefly.

Mix in dry ingredients until incorporated (don't over mix.)

Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 50-60 minutes until it tests done;

cake will just start to pull away from the edges.

Cool slightly then remove from pan.

Dust with confectionery sugar to your liking.


......... and then .........
from my counter to yours

you can crush and store your egg shells

to spread around the base of your tomato plants

during warm weather gardening to help prevent disease

..... and .....

you can put your banana peels in your compost.
