Marble Chocolate Banana Cake

To all who celebrate Mid Autumm Festival, I wishing you 中秋节快乐!

This marble chocolate banana cake was created not intentionally, thought to make a banana cake, while preparing, just remember kids like chocolate chips so I added some. Before pouring into cake tin, suddenly just think why not make it marble effect, so added one portion with cocoa powder and it came out with this moist and yummy marble banana cake. This was also the 1st time i noticed my son Desmond eat more than one piece as normally he doesn't fancy on cakes.

Marble Chocolate Banana Cake



The taste is almost similar like the earlier chocolate banana muffin.
