“Made this for a family gathering. It is delicious! The combination of chocolate and banana is great! It also makes a nice cake since it is two colors when you slice it! I also added half a banana for decoration on the cake. Can't wait to bake it again! I adapted a bit this recipe from a R. Reisman recipe.”
