The result was certainly a surprise!!! Having perused several recipes for my two favorite sorts of cake, I wanted to make use of ingredients that were already on hand.
Banana Cocoa Cake:
2-½ cups flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
3 medium-sized very ripe bananas
1-½ cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 TBS white vinegar
@ 2 cups cold coffee (or any liquid, e.g. H2O, milk, etc.)
Pre-heat oven to 350℉.
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl.
Mash bananas w/sugar and add the remaining ingredients in a larger bowl.
Add dry ingredients to wet - mix by hand with a fork.
Pour this thick batter into a large oiled baking dish.
Bake for about 45 minutes till sides separate from dish and testing knife comes out clean.
This cake is rich, not overly sweet, chocolatey, and moist.
