I love making easy, quick and tasty cakes for every day! I am always super excited when I see a new recipe with ingredients that I like and that are easily accessible. At the end of March, I came across this super sexy recipe and I thought I would give it a try. It was a beautiful spring day and, alone in my kitchen, with the voice of Adam Levine for company (singing “So cold” - I love that song!), I felt happy. Making cakes always put a large smile on my face...
This is a rich but delicious cake which is great on its own, no need to add any toppings. Enjoy!!
4 large eggs
150g butter, softened
1 teaspoon baking powder
100g crushed banana
100g chocolate powder
* Cake size loaf mould: 24cm (L) X 10cm (W).
Beat the 4 yolks with the sugar and add the butter at room temperature and beat until light and fluffy. Add the milk and then mix the sifted flour with the baking powder.
In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff (until they form peaks), then add them to the above mixture and fold them in gently.
Then divide the batter into 2 equal parts: in one mix the crushed banana, in the other mix the chocolate powder.
Grease the cake mould and sprinkle it with flour and alternately pour the two batters into the loaf mould, so that it looks marbled. Bake in a preheated oven at 180º for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, let it cool and remove from the mould.
