TWD- Black-And-White Banana Loaf

I think I found a way of getting my nephew to eat more fruit.  The chocolate marbling in this turned banana loaf into a lick the plate clean kind of food.  My boys are fruit lovers (even if they don’t finish every piece) but Mitchell has entered a picky phase.  So this is a winner for the little ones.

I was surprised at just how runny this cake batter was.  But because of this I came up with another variation of the marbling technique.  I just put in large tablespoons of batter alternating colours, and then I put the opposite colour on top and continued up (I got 4 layers up).  Then I just needed the slightest nudge of the knife blade to get my marbling done.


This cake pleased the little ones and also made the rest of the family happy.  

I do have a confession to make, I am totally in love with Dories Classic Banana Bundt Cake with shards of dark chocolate in it.  This recipe comes close but isn’t my absolute fav use of mushy bananas.
