Daily preparing sweets during ramadan becomes very hectic and I feel short of ideas. During these times this Chocolate Banana Cake comes to my rescue.You guys must be wondering why I am preparing sweets daily. Now as it is ramadan and a month of giving and blessing, we give away iftar to few people daily. So the menu is quite large. Though I prep myself before ramadan, but sweets I cannot freeze. Now as ramadan is nearly ending, more of my time is spent on ibadat, so keep the menu of these quick cakes and other sweet for the last ten days.
And whatever is leftover, many desserts can be assembled from it. I hate wasting food. Motto is prepare only that much amount of food that can be consumed.Lets move to the recipe. The Chocolate banana cake recipe is real simple, and the outcome is yummilicious of chocky goodness.
