This is a rich but delicious cake which is not to sickly because of its lack of icing.

  • Ingredients
  • For the banana mixture :
  • 5 oz / 150g butter
  • 5 oz / 150g self raising flour
  • 5 oz / 150g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1- 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the chocolate mixture :
  • 5 oz / 150g caster sugar
  • 5 oz / 150g self raising flour
  • 5 oz / 150g butter
  • 1 oz / 25g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 dessertspoons cocoa powder
  • For the topping :
  • banana chips
  • cocoa powder


    1. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    2. In another bowl mash up 1-2 bananas (we used 1 1/2 ) then fold them into the butter and sugar.
    3. In a separate mug whisk two eggs together and add to the mixture.
    4. Fold in the flour and baking powder.
    5. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat and add the cocoa powder.
    6. Pour the chocolate mixture into a separate bowl with the sugar in and mix well.
    7. Add another two whisked eggs and mix. Fold in the flour and baking powder.
    8. Put one spoonful of chocolate mixture into a 20cm deep round tin then a spoonful of banana in next to it. Repeat multiple times until all the mixture is in the tin. You should now have a spotty pattern. Take a metal skewer and draw figure-eights in the mixture. It should now have a marbled look.
    9. Cook in a gas mark 5 / 170c fan preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean.
    10. When cooled sprinkle with banana chips and / or cocoa powder.
