Chocolate Banana Cake

Cake without sugar? That doesn’t taste good at all. You bet it tastes good! I’d even bet my last piece of chocolate banana cake on it. Here, the sweetness comes solely from the applesauce and bananas in the batter.

That’s why my tip is to go for brown bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter they taste. The duo also makes the chocolate cake nice and moist. But not soggy, don’t worry.

Baking soda, baking powder, buttermilk and apple cider vinegar make sure of that. This combination makes the chocolate banana cake rise wonderfully fluffy.
