Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make Chocolate Banana Cake:
  2. In a bowl, use a hand mixer to combine butter and sugar.
  3. Add dark brown sugar; beat again to combine.
  4. Then add salt, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil, mix until combined.
  5. Add an egg and beat until well combined, set aside.
  6. In another bowl, use a fork to crush the banana.
  7. Add the crushed banana to the cake mixture and stir.
  8. In another new bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda then mix with a whisk.
  9. Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients; stir well.
  10. To make Fudge Filling:
  11. In a double-boiler, mix chocolate with heavy cream. Warm until melted.
  12. Take off heat, add butter and mix well. Set aside.
  13. To Make the Chocolate Frosting:
  14. In a medium bowl, mix powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder and milk until silky. Set aside.
  15. Assembly:
  16. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  17. Grease a small tall Bundt pan with butter, use a pastry brush to get in all the cracks, and dust with flour. Knock out any excess flour so it's a very thin layer.
  18. Fill half of a Bundt pan with the chocolate banana cake batter.
  19. Pipe in the fudge filling.
  20. Cover the fudge filling with the reaming banana cake batter.
  21. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
  22. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes. Once the cake cools, flip the pan onto a wire cooling rack and remove the cake from the Bundt pan.
  23. Spoon/drizzle the chocolate frosting on top; let it drip down the sides.
  24. Top with dehydrated banana chips.
