Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

Recipe from Bakers Royale

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake


For the cake:
390g plain flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 pinch salt
115g unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
160g light brown sugar
2 eggs
360ml mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
160ml buttermilk
250g milk/dark chocolate chips
For the cream cheese frosting:
340g unsalted butter
225g cream cheese
2tsp vanilla extract
450g icing sugar, sifted

1. Butter and flour two 8 inch cake pans. Preheat the oven to 180◦C/350F/mark 4.

2. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Gradually mix in the egg and mashed banana. In alternating thirds, mix in the flour mixture and buttermilk. Once well combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

4. Pour into the prepared pans and bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the the centre of the cakes comes out clean. Leave for 10 minutes before removing from the pans to cool completely.

5. For the frosting, beat together the butter, cream cheese and vanilla until light and fluffy. Mix in the icing sugar.

6. Slice each cake into two layers and sandwich together with the frosting. Spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides of the cake and dust with a little extra icing sugar.
