With the nights getting colder and longer in December, it is always nice to have something sweet to nibble on while snuggling under the blankets in front of a nice movie. Ok, I am describing my ideal evening; not what really happens with me running to complete a report or take care of some house chores that can’t wait until the week end.
Whatever your evenings look like, one thing is sure, no one likes to spend hours in the kitchen just to make that sweet something to eat in front of TV.
So here’s a recipe that doesn’t take ages to realize, tastes good and is a no fail (0 fails in every single attempt I made at it).
Here is what you will need:
– 3 eggs
– 150g powder sugar
– 160g flour
– 1 tea spoon baking powder
– 130g slightly salted butter
-1 big spoon of cocoa powder (I used van houten)
For the filling:
– 3 bananas
– 1 table spoon butter
– 1 table spoon powder sugar
– Vanilla extractIf you want you can add a handful of crushed nuts.You start by beating the eggs and the sugar unteil they get foamy and slightly snowy, then you add little by little the flour, baking powder, melted butter and the cocoa.
On a frying pan, you mix together the filling ingredients: butter, the bananas that you would have previously cut into small pieces, the sugar and the vanilla extract. You keep the mix on the fire until they get soft and slightly caramelized (3~4 minutes).
Add the caramelized bananas to the mix of eggs and flour and the crushed nuts. Get all the ingredients into a homogeneous mixture using a wooden spoon.
Pour into a buttered/floured cake mold and cook into a preheated oven, 180degrees for 35 minutes.
