This cake is the result of two people, me and my son 🤩 me like banana bread, & the my son(aarush) loves chocolate cake – but only having enough time to make one. Combining these two flavors into one cake was a no-brainer. Of course, I could just choose to make one of the cakes, but you know me…😉😀

Chocolate Banana Pound Cake

  • Ripe bananas: if possible, use those very ripe one with brown spots for a stronger banana flavor.
  • All-purpose flour: I use unbleached all-purpose flour.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • White Sugar : You can use Jaggery powder and Palm sugar too.
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Milk
  • Egg : At room temperature
  • Walnuts(totally optional)
  • Butter or oil: I have tried making the cake with both butter and oil and it turns out delicious either way.

Chocolate Banana Cake with Walnuts

Make sure to use very ripe bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter and better they are for baked goods. If you like, you can replace part of the granulated sugar with jaggery powder either light or dark brown sugar. You can also stir in some chopped walnuts or any dry fruits which you like most like pecans. The best part about this cake, though, is that it’s so moist you can enjoy it for days!
