The choco cake

Choco cake

Appreciation in any form is pleasing & encouraging. Optimistic mails, rave reviews or even a gentle pat on your back from your loved ones can motivate and enforce you to do the best each day.

I lost the number of counts I re-read my first mail of appreciation from Ezine articles for accepting and publishing my article on their directory ranking me as an expert author ! I baked this choco-banana cake to rejoice my feat. Share it with me..


  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp. Cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Curds (yogurt)
  • 1 banana (large variety)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking soda
  • a pinch of salt

Method: Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Peel & dice the banana and grind it in a mixer with sugar, butter, cocoa powder and curd. Keep aside 2 tbsp. Of this liquid for decoration. Sieve the dry ingredients (flour, baking pwd, baking soda) twice. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture little at a time, beating well after each addition. Grease a cake mould and pour the batter in it. Bake it for 30 minutes or till done.

Check the cake by inserting a tooth-pick or a knife in it, if it comes out clean the cake is done. Cool the cake on a wire rack before unmoulding.

Pour the reserved syrup over it and slurp your choco-banana cake right away…

    thanks a million for such a wonderful site, I have always been away from baking thinking it is for the experts, but you have made it seem so simple, I have few questions,
    what is self raising flour /
    in some of places you have mentioned to use baking powder as well as baking soda, do we need to use both of them.or only baking powder is fine.

    thnking you once again.

    @Geetanjali, Thanks for your sweet words 🙂 Self raising flour is refined flour in which a small proportion of leavening agents (baking soda/baking powder) is already present. Yes baking powder and baking soda are both different, one is alkaline and one is acidic in nature. You can read the Baking Glossary on Lite Bite for more info.
    Thanks again and happy baking!
