Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake – Phoenix/Scottsdale Food Photographer & Stylist
So how do you make banana bread special? Well the answer is turn it into a bundt cake! And the real vanilla whipped cream adds to the specialness too! So here is the recipe:
Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
6 bananas, mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sour cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 1 bundt pan and 1 small bread pan. In a mixer cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, then stir in bananas and vanilla. Sift in flour, baking soda and cocoa powder, and mix well. Add in sour cream, chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared pans. Bake in oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake rest for at least 20 minutes before turn out of pans.
So you should now have a fancy bundt cake and a small loaf of banana bread. I’ll show you what to do with the loaf of banana bread in another posting. (This can be frozen.) So if that is not fancy enough here is something that is just for adults, you can leave this for the kids.
Before putting on the dollop of whipped cream pour a little port over the top of the cake and then add the whip cream. The cake will soak it up, you won’t need much, not more then an ounce of the port. I used Six Grapes Porto and its wonderful for this or just to have a glass so feel free to pair this together if you don’t want to pour over the top.
You can not go wrong with this recipe no matter what you choose to bake it in. I had a little mess while I was removing the cake on one of the tests. Other then it not looking pretty there was nothing wrong with it so I’ve made bread pudding with it. I will have that and how you can make the bread into very special french toast. See, so many things from just this one recipe. I would love to know if you make this and how it turns out! Leave me a comment here or connect with me on Facebook.
