Aspiring Bakers #7: Chocolate-Bottom Banana Squares

Jumped on the bandwagon a bit later than others again? Hehehe. So many bloggers raved about the recipe and after trying out myself, I have to agree with them. The recipe is definitely a keeper.

I reduced the chocolate for this round since my family had been eating a lot of chocolate/chocolate cake lately.

Chocolate-Bottom Banana Squares
Recipe adapted from Small Small Baker

110 g
Butter, room temperature
60 g
Egg, lightly beaten
 1 tsp
Vanilla extract
200 g
Bananas, mashed
(about 3 medium-sized)
180 g
Cake flour
1 tsp
Baking powder
1 tsp
Baking soda
½ tsp
1 tbsp
Cocoa powder
Chocolate chips for topping

1.      Sift the cake flour, baking powder, and baking soda together. Set it aside.
2.      Gently beat the egg and add in the vanilla extract. Set aside.
3.      Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
4.      Add in the egg mixture slowly then, add the mashed bananas. Beat till creamy.
5.      Fold in the sifted flour in 3 separate batches. Mix well with a spatula.
6.      Pour out 1/3 of the batter and mix with cocoa powder.
7.      Pour the chocolate batter first, spread evenly. (The mixture will be thick)
8.      Pour the plain batter on top of the chocolate batter and spread evenly.
9.      Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
10.  Bake in preheated oven at 180°C for 25-30 minutes.

Thanks Kristy! Help yourself to it! xD

Hi Anncoo, apparently lots of bloggers had been baking it. I only found out after reading from j3ss kitch3n and Small Small Baker. xD Can't wait to see your post about it.
