Good things to eat

Ever get invited to a last-minute Bar B Q or dinner event and you are asked to bring the dessert?  Don’t have time to get to the store, or like me there are expectations of home-made so store-bought won’t do?

Well here’s a super easy cake to wow them with!

Chocolate banana squish cake

Start with what ever your favorite chocolate cake recipe might be, or look one up on the internet.

Bake that cake in two separate pans.  Can be round or square or what ever shape you like really, but your two halves should probably be the same.

Let cool.

Actually, because I was bringing this to a Bar B Q and cake transport isn’t a strong point of mine, I packed up all the elements separately and assembled on site. 

While the cake is cooling you can make the “banana squish”.  I am sure there is some fancy French name for this but it is what it is.

Saute up in a frying pan:

  • 1 tbsp butter ( yes butter not margarine or that sort of thing)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 bananas chopped

And if you wanted it to be a boozy cake, add a splash of rum or brandy or whatever seems to work.

Keep cooking till it is a nice this “squished” banana product.

Then be sure to let it cool completely otherwise it will ooze when you try to put it on the cake.

Then the last thing you will need is whipping cream.   Whip up in a cold bowl or with a mixmaster:

  • 1  250 ml ( 1 cup) container of whip cream
  • 1 tsp sugar ( or not)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate sauce or if you had banana liqueur

Beat until you get stiff peaks.   Then transfer to a container and put in fridge ( or freezer if you aren’t going to be too long) until use or travel.

Once you are ready to assemble:

  • Put down first layer of chocolate cake
  • add layer of whip cream
  • add all of the banana squish
  • add second layer of cake
  • add remaining whip cream
  • sprinkle with chocolate chips ( or fresh chopped banana)

Voila, easy as cake!
