No Moles In This Mound – Just Yummy Cream & Bananas

There's really only one place you want to see a molehill: your plate. And of course that's no dirt – it's a delectable chocolate crumble concealing a lusciously creamy interior! Leave the cake mix on the shelf next time you're at the store, because you can make this delicious chocolate banana cake completely from scratch. 

You'll Need:
  • 1 2/3 sticks butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 2/3 cups cream
  • 1/3 cup chocolate shavings
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Here's How:

  1. For the bottom cake layer mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder, flour, and cocoa powder in a large bowl until the batter is smooth. Pour it into a springform cake pan and bake it at 350°F for one hour.
  2. As soon as this layer is baked and has completely cooled off, spoon out a hole in the middle, setting that bit of cake carefully aside. Place the bananas side by side in the empty space in the center of the cake layer. 
  3. Whip the cream until it's stiff and fold in the chocolate shavings and vanilla extract. Then spoon it onto the bananas.
  4. Now for the finale: crumble up the part of the cake you spooned out and sprinkle the crumbs over the top.

One bite and you're floating on a cloud. Bananas, chocolate, and cream are a divine combo. Every gardener will welcome this molehill — and all your other guests too!
