Chocolate Banana Nutella Cake - 香蕉榛子酱蛋糕

Nothing beats a slice of good old pound cake for afternoon tea. This fusion version of Chocolate Banana Nutella Pound Cake includes mashed banana to add-on a moist texture even when refrigerated plus the rich flavour of Dutch-processed cocoa powder and Nutella for a more chocolately taste.



CHOCOLATE BANANA NUTELLA CAKE


Chocolate Banana Nutella Cake
Made use of the over-ripe banana that was sitting on the counter into these beautiful tea cake. And instead of making it into a big loaf, I divided the batter into two mini loaf so that one could be freeze for later part of the week as breakfast or snack. Besides that I also arrange some walnuts on it before basking because we love the combination of banana and walnut.

Chocolate Banana Nutella Cake - 香蕉榛子酱蛋糕
说也真奇怪熟了几天的香蕉在家里通常都沒人理会但要是把它变成香蕉蛋糕情况就不同了。为了让蛋糕有点层次感,我用了可可粉和榛子酱做了这个二合一的松软香蕉蛋糕。每一口吃起来都带有浓郁的巧克味和甜甜的香蕉气息真是下午茶的首选点心。
