Recipe: Go Bananas! Cake


Do your children love bananas? If so, they will Go Bananas! over this delicious cake which combines two of the best food pairings in all of baking – banana and chocolate!

Instead of traditional banana bread, this Go Bananas recipe is cake based with a chocolate and nutty frosting on top. My daughter, Ava, not only loved eating this delicious cake, but also had a fun afternoon being mommy’s baking assistant. She loved pouring all the ingredients into the bowl and stirring the mix. Although, I believe her favorite part was licking the spoon whenever she got the chance!
