After seeing a recipe for a three-ingredient chocolate cake, I accepted the challenge.
1 ripe banana
1 Tablespoon Cocoa
Blend and pour batter into a ramekin, 3/4 full and bake.
This recipe makes one large ramekin or two small, but the size of banana may play a part.
So far, so good. The original recipe suggested to microwave, however, I attempted this years ago and found it inedible. This time I baked it for the suggested time and temperature, but this was not long or hot enough.
The second test cake, I baked it at 375 degrees for 16-18 minutes. Of course, this doesn’t have the same texture as a traditional cake. It reminded me more of bread pudding but without the bread! Regardless, this was simple and tasty enough to make again. Also, it’s best served warm.
Next attempt, I may add a handful of chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter.
We did add a dollop of whipped cream, but ice cream would be good too.
Put this under the category of “emergency” desserts.
If you need to omit the egg, I liked the suggestions made by Joy the Baker.
