Have been so busy with packing up everything around the house. And also using every single free time to meet up with good friends for the last time before we leave. Although I am still not done with the packing, I am still baking away, hahaha! Even as I am typing this post right now, I have another cake in the oven! Anyway, I wanted to put up this post before Christmas arrive. Yesterday I managed to baked a simple Chocolate Banana Cake and decorated it with Christmas theme. I wanted to share this cake with my good friends/neighbors here whom have always been good friends, moral supporters and lending me a helping hand. Gonna miss them so much. :-( So this cake is dedicated for them, hoping they will have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas & New Year.Basically this is a chocolate sponge cake covered with dark chocolate whipped cream, and then poured over a layer of dark chocolate ganache, with banana slices between the cake layers. The chocolate sponge cake is apated from Kitchen Corner, thanks! As for the chocolate whipped cream is mainly just quality melted chocolate folded into whipped heavy cream.
Really did not have much time to do real nice deco, so simply used tinted white chocolate ganache and buttercream icing to pipe out everything. :-) I added mini chocolate chips around the cake edge for extra taste & texture. :)The end result was delectable, everyone loves it, including me. :D The cake was soft and spongy, the chocolate buttercream and ganahe was just smooth and chocolaty, not too sweet and went really well with the sponge cake. ;0 The bananas were really yummy with the chocolate too, I was super glad I choose bananas over blueberries. ;) The kids were especially fond of the mini chocolate chips at the side! ;)
Overall, a wonderful desert to have after dinner So glad I managed to bake it up for my friends and their family to enjoy this Christmas. ;) Last but not least, I want to wish everyone out there, a Wonderful Christmas this year and may all your wishes come true! Warmest wishes from yours truly, HoneyBeeSweets. ;)
