A quick post for a lazy Friday… TGIF! Banana-themed bakes usually comes to mind when one has overripened remnants of an unfinished comb at home. And for me, its no exception. My default bake is a classic banana butter cake, from a recipe which I’d been using since the days when I started baking. In fact, it was my very first cake! I remember being totally overwhelmed by the sweetness and aroma of a banana cake when I was very young, in much disbelief that its actually from the yellow-skinned fruit which I’d so used to eating. How drastically the flavours transformed upon cooking!
But this time round, I’d crave for a lighter cake and a chiffon seemed the most apt! Banana with chocolate had always been best pals for eternity. I remember when I was in Rockhampton, Australia more than 10 years back, my pals and I bought bananas and chocolate from a nearby Woolsworth. Dipped fresh bananas in melted down chocolate and set them in the chiller… Sheer bliss! But I was too lazy to melt chocolate last night. So I guess Valrhona cocoa powder would do just fine. So here it is, an impromptu Banana and Cocoa Chiffon バナナとココアシフォン 🙂
