Baking is not for me, I shall say. That’s a fact. I have tried a few times before baking some of the Filipino breads but I messed it up so I am not doing it again.
However, one thing I can do which I am good at is baking banana bread. This time, I made it perfectly. I craved for rich chocolate cake but I don’t have it available, I did not want to drive 12 miles just to get it at the grocery store. What I do instead, bake it at home.
Craving satisfied for a chocolate cake, though mine isn’t rich but it’s good and a bit healthier.
Here’s the recipe that I keep in handy, although not all in the list of ingredients I followed.
2 1/2 flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsps. hershey’s chocolate powder
4 large eggs
2 tsps. cornstarch
2 tsps. baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
4-5 ripe bananas (mashed up)
1 tsp. salt
2 sticks melted butter
2 tsps. pure vanilla extract
2 cups walnuts
Mix all dry ingredients except sugar! Add it to the wet ingredients. Use mixer to get the cake texture of your batter. Bake at 320 F for 1:20 minutes.
OPTIONAL: add nuts of your choice.
