We all know the how fantastic is the combination of chocolate and banana. Nevertheless adding caramel to it takes the whole cake to another level. Try it and let me know what you think.

There were few bananas sitting on my counter which has become over ripe and  quickly approaching rotten and I knew I needed to find a use for them. I wanted to bake something other than the classic banana bread or cakes. Since I also had freshly homemade caramel sauce I decided to mix it up and pair the banana with chocolate and caramel sauce. Hence this chocolate banana caramel cake was created.

Preheat oven at 180° C for 10 minutes. Grease cake tin with oil or butter and line with parchment paper. You can dust flour if your dont have parchment paper.

Greased baking tin

Bake the cake at a preheated oven with both the filaments on @180° C for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Baking time will vary depending on your oven temperature and settings.

Remove the cake from the oven and allow to stand for 5-10 minutes.

Demould the cake and allow to cool down completely.

Drizzle the caramel sauce over the cake. I poured the caramel sauce in a piping bag and let it drizzle all through the cake.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHOCOLATE BANANA CARAMEL CAKE WITH EGG?

You can use 1 egg. Crack the egg onto the wet ingredients and whisk together well with the wet ingredients. You can skip the baking soda if you’re using egg.

HOW TO STORE THE CAKE?

This cake can stay good for 2-3 days in the counter. You can refrigerate for upto 1 week in an airtight container.  You can also freeze this cake in the freezer for upto 3 months.

For freezing, I would recommend to cut the cake into slices and individually cling wrap them and store in an airtight container. This makes it easier whenever you want to serve as you can just take out how much you wanted and thaw them before serving.

HOW TO SERVE THE FREEZED CHOCOLATE BANANA CARAMEL CAKE?

Whenever you want to serve the freezed chocolate banana cake, just take the cake from the freezer and thaw the cake in the refrigerator. Once the cake is thawed you can serve the cake as it is or you can slightly warm it in the microwave for few seconds and serve.
