Chocolate banana slab

Chocolate & banana..that’s a surprisingly gud combo.. 😉

A take on the banana bread, this Chocolate banana slab could be a good choice for a picnic parcel or a mid morning/evening snack. Although initially the combo of Banana and Chocolate seemed little weird to me, they tasted pretty good in the final product.

I have used Robusta variety of banana for the cake. You could go with any type of sweet and ripe bananas for the recipe.

So here’s an easy to bake Chocolate banana slab cake, that is sure to please you even after many bites. Enjoy… 😀
