Comments(0)

The New Years menu can be a common worry well, when it comes to the dessert we’ve got you sorted with this amazing banana and chocolate cake with custard.

What You Need ?

  • 2 eggs
  • 250g self raising flour
  • 50g butter
  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 3 bananas
  • 20g white chocolate (for decoration)
  • 300ml of ready made or homemade custard

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. 
  • Grease a 30cm cake tin and line the tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Take a mixing bowl and cream the butter and sugar together until a cream like consistency is achieved.
  • Beat in the two eggs until all the ingredients are combined evenly and a smooth mix is achieved.
  • Sieve the flour into the bowl and slowly fold, avoiding flour lumps and beating air out of the cake.
  • In a separate bowl take a fork and mash up two of the bananas evenly and add this to the previous mixture until the mix is even.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips and ensure an even distribution.
  • Pour the cake mix into the tin and use a spatula to spread the top of the cake until level.
  • Bake the cake for 25 – 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until a skewer can be placed through the centre and come out clean.
  • Leave the cake to cool and then turn it onto a plate.
  • Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until smooth and runny.
  • Once cooled drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the cake.
  • Slice the remaining bananas thinly and add as decoration to the cake.
  • Heat the custard in preparation for serving.
  • Slice the cake into a suggested six servings and serve hot or cold with the custard.
