Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cake

by - Thursday, June 04, 2020

Warm peanut butter to drizzle
This is one of those typical "damn, my bananas have gone too ripe!" kind of cake.
Bananas at this stage however have the best flavour for baking. They are sweet and full of flavour. So don't let them go to waste.

This recipe was inspired by @bromabakery. I tweeked the recipe a bit and made some changes and it is just so damn delicious! I definitely recommend you give it a try when you have those bananas lying around.
This cake is great to have at any time of the day, wether for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

So juicy and delicious...especially with the crunchy crumble


Chocolate Peanut Butter Streusel Cake


200g butter
200g sugar
300g flour
1g salt
1tsp vanille paste

Mix the butter, sugar, salt and vanilla just until combined (don't whip)
Add the flour all at once and mix until you have a crumble-like consistency.
You can crumble the dough a little with your hands to get nice pieces.
 Set aside.

Chocolate cake base:

80g peanut butter (slightly warmed up in the microwave)
145g sugar
165g flour
70g cocoa powder
150g Felchlin Dark chocolate (I used Maracaibo Clasificado 65% - melted)
200g bananas (mashed, equals about 2 bananas)
125ml sunflower oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1g Salt
1 banana sliced for the topping

(You can substitute the Felchlin Maracaibo chocolate for another dark chocolate if you are not able to get it)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Prepare your cake tin/loaf pan lined with parchment paper on the bottom. Butter and flour the sides of your baking tin/moulds to make sure nothing sticks. Set aside.
Mix together the eggs, sugar, oil and the peanut butter until well combined. Add the mashed bananas and the melted chocolate.
Once incorporated add the dry ingredients and mix well until you have a smooth and clump free batter. Fill into your prepared moulds.
Place the sliced banana on top and press it just slightly into the batter.
Cover the top with streusel and bake at 180°C for about 40-45 minutes (you can do a knife test if you like, it should come out clean).
Let it cool and enjoy!

Happy Baking!
