A blade shines in the darkest of the nights
Pierre always say that I have a tendency to buy enough fruits to feed a family of 4 and I always brush his comments aside. Well, this is one of those times he is right. I did bought too many fruits this time around. I have a ripe pineapple sitting in my fridge (originally doomed to go into a pineapple rice), some pears already in the trash and 4 over-ripe bananas sitting on the dinning table with a desperate 'Eat me. Eat me!' sign. I shared one with my daughter this morning so we are down to 3. I was thinking of making a banana pie or a banana smoothie when I recalled my last disastrous attempt at a modified version of Banana Chocolate cake recipe. Since then, I've been wanting to make this cake again to prove to myself that I'm not that bad of a cook. So this time around, I decided to play it safe and stick to my original recipe. Like Pierre always says, 'If it is fine and tasty as it is, why change it ?' but i have a tendency not to listen and like to experiment (and as any mad-scientist will tell you, experiments can turn really ugly!).
The over-riped bananas gives a strong fruity flavour to the cake. It was very soft, fluffy and moist. The dark chocolate, a classic with banana, adds a nice kick on the taste buds. It's just nicely sweet.
