The Cake Slice : Banana Cake with Chocolate Frosting and some Forgotten Posts


Here is the last cake I made for The Cake Slice I'm always in search for banana cakes or breads or wahtever can help with my secret banana's freezer drawer and this was a good one it looks much more festive than my usual breads and it tastes wonderfully moist .
I must confess I didn't use the recipe's chocolate frosting because I really can't get myself to like the butter/confectioner's sugar frosting and tried a milk chocolate ganache from a famous italian pastry chef : Maurizio Santin.


If you wish to try this delicious cake here you can find the original recipe from Southern Cakes Nancie McDermott.
And if you want to try the ganache here is the recipe:

Bring to a boil 200 gr of heavy cream with 20 gr corn syrup. Add 210 gr milk chocolate and mix, add 70 gr butter mixing until smooth.
I let the ganache cool and then filled and frosted the cake.
Please visit the blog for more bananas cakes and please welcome my more than late last two months cakes !!

These cakes are beautiful! I love a good banana cake...I'm usually a cream cheese frosting person with it but chocolate sounds just as good.

Oh goodness....these cakes look fantastic! I love the combo of bananas and chocolate!

Leslie said...

Each one of those cakes looks amazing! I totally agree with you on the confectioner's sugar in frosting or glaze recipes...I can't stand the taste. Milk chocolate ganache is a great solution!
