This lazy cake (some call it biscuits au chocolat or gateau froid) without doubt, will be a staple in your fridge. When talking about winning combos, we shouldn’t undermine the marriage power of chocolate and banana!

A classic lazy cake is already a hit, I always wondered how it will turn out if i stir in some bananas, and here is the day i dared trying it. Trust me it’s heaven in your mouth.

All you need is:

  • 75g butter
  • 200g dark chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 bananas ripe (mashed with a fork)
  • 40 pieces biscuit marie

Heat butter and chopped chocolate until melted, you can do it in a heat prood bowl in the microwave or simply in a pot on a medium heat. Stir in cocoa powder and sugar, whisk until sugar is melted. Take off the heat then add bananas and finally crush each biscuit in 4 and toss in the chocolate banana sauce.

Fold gently so you don’t crush the biscuits in tiny pieces until all of them are well coated. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap to put the biscuits and chocolate, this way it will have a rectangular shape, easy to cut. Depending on how thick you want your cake to be, use the convenient mold size, mine is 11¨. With the back of a spoon (or your hand) shape the mixture in the loaf pan.

Refrigerate at least for 3 hours, take it out, unwrap, cut in slices using a sharp knife and savor!

Some people like to sprinkle over icing sugar before serving, it’s not a bad idea actually, it makes it look more festive and appetizing. You can serve with roasted walnut as well, it goes well with chocolate and banana.

It’s a new recipe to add in my creations, i am sure i will revisit more often, it’s a real pleasure to the palate. When you try it, i would love to have your opinion, don’t hesitate to write for me.
