Banana Walnut Cake with Dark Chocolate

Banana Walnut Cake with Dark Chocolate

Some famous television chefs suggest dusting old grandmothers’ recipes, one of the recipes I will propose today. The recipe can be used with bananas or apples.

As we religiously prepare recipe after recipe, I also highly suggest that everyone also takes up a daily workout because, as the Latin Sages said: “mens sana in corpore sana” (a healthy mind in a healthy body). Also, how would we do it if we had to go to the beach this summer? We will no longer fit in our swimsuits.

Banana Walnut Cake with Dark Chocolate

For now, let’s return to our delicious recipe. When I thought about making banana dark chocolate nut cake, I didn’t expect it to be so good. It amazed me with its soft and fluffy dough enriched with crunchy walnuts.

I used 70% Modica chocolate, which I described in another post about the “Almond Cake with Modica Chocolate“cake. But you can use any other type of 70% dark chocolate.

Banana walnut cake with dark chocolate is a moist and delicious dessert that combines the rich flavors of ripe bananas, crunchy walnuts, and decadent dark chocolate. Here's a recipe you can follow to make this delightful cake:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2.5 ounces dark chocolate (70%)
  • 7 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/8 cups flour 00
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1.41 ounce walnuts (chopped)
    • Melt the chocolate with the butter in a double boiler.
    • Chop the walnuts in the mixer.
    • Work the egg and sugar combo with a whisk until a swollen and frothy mixture is obtained.
    • With the help of a fork, mash the two very ripe bananas in a bowl, reducing them to a puree.
    • Add the banana puree, the chocolate with the butter, the chopped walnuts, and the flour with the baking powder to the egg and sugar mixture.
    • Transfer what has been obtained into a buttered and floured pan. Bake in a hot oven at 180 ° C for 30-35 minutes.
    • Do the toothpick test.
    • And when it’s cooled completely, decorate to your pleasure.
    • I decorate it with finely chopped walnuts and caramelized chopped bananas.
