Chocolate Banana Coffee Cake

A cake post after a long time. Not that I haven’t baked cakes in this interim period but yes no new cake or something I felt like posting. This one surely did. This recipe is inspired by what I saw in My Kitchen Tweets.


1 ½ cup whole wheat flour,
1 large very ripe banana,
2 eggs,
2/3 cup vegetable oil,
3/4 cup fine sugar,
1/2 tsp baking soda,
1/2 tsp baking powder,
4 tsp instant coffee powder,
2 tsp vanilla extract,
1/2 cup chocolate chips,
Pinch of salt,
1 tbsp icing sugar

For the Glaze

¼ cup chocolate vermicelli or chips,
1/4 cup cream,
1 tsp instant coffee powder


In a large mixing bowl combine the whole wheat flour, chocolate chips, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Blend the banana, eggs, oil, sugar, instant coffee powder and vanilla extract.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients.

Grease and flour a cake tin. Pour the batter into the cake tin.

Preheat the oven to 162 oC for ten minutes. Bake it at 162 oC for 40 minutes. Un-mould and cool.  

Mix all the glaze ingredients over a double boiler till the chocolate vermicelli or chips melt completely. Pour this glaze over the cake and sprinkle the icing sugar over the glaze.
