Just a quick post for today and I’m sorry about not writing more. Although they do say pictures speak far louder than words, and I do have a lot of photos to share.
Unfortunately I’ve been rather busy this week with lab reports and studying for exams, so I have been quite pressed for time, but luckily I’ve still managed to find time for baking somewhere in the chaos.
This is inspired by Foodiefiasco’s Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake.
I decided I would try a banana one because I love bananas. Seriously, bananas are life.
Mmm, sweet, delicious banana sauce. Yeah I definitely like bananas.
I don’t like a lot of banana flavoured products. Weird right? It’s like how I hate most cherry flavoured products because they taste like artificial cough syrup flavour, but my dad can’t get enough of the stuff.
Anyway back to the main star of today.
This layer will become your sauce after pouring a load of water and banana over the top. Trust me, this does work and it works well.
The first attempt wasn’t the best and the sauce didn’t quite sink to the bottom, instead running through the cake like gooey ribbons.It was very nice, but not quite cakey top and sauce on the bottom.
But, the second time was a delicious cake on top with goeey sauce on the bottom. Both were really nice and I loved the flavours of this cake and pudding combination. It’s definitely one I want to experiment more with in the future.
And now, your recipe awaits:
