Hello dear blog followers,

last week my great collaborators and I experimented a bit with dessert and the result was this delicious cake, with a banana chocolate heart and a hint of coffee!

Special thanks to Tracey for helping out with the icing!

  • 2cups flour (whatever type you prefer)
  • 1teaspoon baking powder
  • 12teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • half a cup of coffee
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
  3. Add the sugar, vanilla, and water and mix well.
  4. In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt together.
  5. Pour the flour mixture into the bananas. Mix well (if you want to add choco chips, walnuts, or carob chips, now is the time to do so).
  6. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 55-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean.

FOR THE ICING
