Dark Chocolate Banana Cake by Raia's Recipes
 

Beware you milk chocolate lovers, this Dark Chocolate Banana Cake is probably not for you. I prefer my chocolate dark – as dark as can be had. My husband, on the other hand, does not share my love of 88% cacao.

When I had him taste test this cake his first response was, “Nice texture.”

Ha.

So I put a nice frosting on it for him. 🙂

If, however, you are like me and enjoy your chocolate dark, dig in without the frosting! It will save you a little time and quite a bit of sugar….  🙂
