In the world of pastery the best chef's like to experiment a lot with different falvors and products.
I like to experiment a lot with the combination of fruit and chocolate or fruit and caramel.
This time we will be making a cake with Banana's and Chocolate. And if you like to decorate this with anything that comes to your mind, feel free to do so..
For the base:
- 5 eggs
- 1 tea cup of sugar
- 1 tea cup of flower
- 1 small pack of vanilla powder (if you can't find it, no problem, its not essential)
For the glaze:
- Cream 300-400 grams
- Nutella Chocolate Spread 200 grams
- 2 tea cups of milk
- 3 bananas
Seperate the egg yellow from the egg white, don't throw anything away just seperate them. Mix all the yellows with half a cup of sugar. Mix the egg whites with the other half of the cup of sugar. Still keep them seperated!
Now take the flower into a bowl and mix it with the egg yellows. Slowly start adding the mixture of the egg whites into the bowl while mixing. Add the vanilla powder and keep mixing until you get a very fine structure.
Prepare a small baking tin and lay a layer of baking paper on it. Now sip all of the mixture you just made into the tin. Put this into the pre-heated oven at 180 degrees celcius (356 F) and take it out when it gets a golden color. Once you got it out let it sit for a while after that cut it in 2 pieces (horizontally) trough the middle.
Heat up 1 cup of milk and add 3-5 spoons of sugar in it. Now remove the upper layer of the cake (remember you just cut them in 2) and soak the lower layer with the milk, be carefull you dont want it to be really wet, just a little soaked.
Take a new bowl and mix the cream with the chocolate with a mixer.
Smear the layer with this mixture and place cut banana slices all over it.
Now place the second layer of cake ontop of that and repeat the last few steps (the milk soakng, smearing with chocolate cream). If you want you can decorate the cake with some M&M's or something like that.
Now let the cake rest for 20-30 minutes and after that enjoy your banana-choco cake!
