Written by admin


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup good quality cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups mashed banana
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease two 9-inch cake pans well and dust with cocoa. Alternatively, you can line the pans with parchment paper after greasing them.
  3. Sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  4. Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  6. Mix in the mashed banana and vegetable oil.
  7. Mix together the lemon juice and milk to sour it.
  8. Fold the dry ingredients into the banana mixture, alternately with the soured milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. You can add the dry ingredients in 3 portions and the soured milk in 2 portions.
  9. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  10. Cool the cakes completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Enjoy your delicious Chocolate Banana Cake!
