Apple Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Recently I came across this super simple cake recipe and I immediately wanted to try it. It was a real success. So moist and exquisite. Sweetheart was conquered and I believe you will be too when you have taste it. So here’s the recipe.

Ingredients:
100 g of flour
50 g of sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of oil
6 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 banana
2 apples (I used Golden Delicious)
1 handful of dark chocolate chips

Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 180 °C. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, oil, milk and egg. Once well mixed, add the dark chocolate chips.

Pour into a buttered cake mould and place the fruits cut into pieces, on top (first the banana then the apples).

Bake for 45 min. Leave to cool on a rack on removing from the oven.

Serves 8

Note: You can replace the dark chocolate chips with a handful of raisins macerated in rum (as per the original recipe).

  4. That looks fabulous! I love a loaf cake like this that doesn't require any kind of glaze or topping. The crust is beautifully golden and crispy. Makes you want to grab a corner and take a bite right away. : ) Your other half is lucky!

    1. Thanks Jacqueline!

      You had left a message twice on my blog and you received a response. My answer remains the same.

      I CAN NOT FOLLOW YOU because I don't have either a Facebook or an Instagram account, nor do I plan to get one.

      Besides, I blog for pleasure, not for business!
