Temptation Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

I am back again to bake a birthday cake, a fresh cream birthday cake. This time I make chocolate banana cake for Camus's birthday. To me, I am lazy to make this type of cake as I will need to spend 3 hours and above (can up to 5~6 hours) to make a whole cake, from weighting ingredients to decorate the cake. Also, I will accumulate the left over ingredients like fresh cream, sponge cake mix and some others for months, or years...until they are expired...then throw them away. I really feel wasted to throw away those ingredients, and many times I also very lazy to make a move to stand in kitchen for whole afternoon on my weekend to make this type of cake. Of course, some time I "got form got ohm", I will do it happily just like this time, another chocolate banana cake was born in my kitchen, for an OLD baby that was born on 34 years ago. Let me share the recipe of this chocolate banana cake with photos I have taken. RecipeIngredientsChocolate Sponge Cake260g sponge cake mix260g eggs70g hot water1tbsp chocolate powder80g melted butter Chocolate Ganache100g chocolate (cut to small pieces)50g fresh milk Filling400g whipped fresh cream150g chocolate ganache (you may add all or leave some for decoration)3tbsp coffee kahlua (optional)8~10pcs banana (I used pisang "awak" as we like the "compact and smooth" texture of this banana) MethodFor chocolate sponge cake:1. Mix chocolate powder and hot water.2. Use mixer, beat sponge cake mix and eggs in high speed for 6 minutes. 3. Switch to medium speed and slowly pour in chocolate liquid from step 1 to sponge egg mixture and beat for another 2 minutes.4. Lastly, combine melted butter with sponge mixture.Hint: To prevent sponge mixture separated from melted butter, take a portion of mixture combine with melted butter first, then just combine with the rest of mixture.5. Pour chocolate sponge mixture into baking pan, bake at preheated oven (160C) for 40 minutes or until cooked.6. When the cake is cool, slice to 3 pieces in horizontal. For chocolate Ganache:1. Put chocolate and milk in a pot/bowl, double boil until chocolate is melted. For filling:1. Mix whipped cream and chocolate ganache until combine = chocolate cream.2. Remove banana skin, slice half into horizontal. To assemble cake:1. Place a slice of chocolate sponge cake on cake board.2. Evenly pour a table spoon of coffee kahlua on sponge cake.3. Spread a thin layer of chocolate cream with spatula on top of sponge cake.4. Arrange banana on top of chocolate cream.5. Spread another thin layer of chocolate cream to sandwich the banana.6. Sandwich cream and banana with second slice of chocolate cake.7. Repeat step 2~6 for second layer.8. For last layer, pour a table spoon of coffee kahlua on sponge cake.9. Decorate accordingly. Before ending this post, I would like to wish Camus "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Everyday"!

Cosway Bread Maker Machine

This is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present. The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

Bento_5According to Camus, experience of eating a bento set in train while traveling from one place to another place is a must in Japan. In order to not make our trip a regretted one, we bought a bento set in Kyoto Station when we were headed to Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.

It was much more delicious compare to what we expected and the food was very fresh too. This set of bento cost 950yen (about RM35). Bento sets are very popular in Japan, you can easily get it at the places such as train stations, most super market or convenient shop.

Hi Malick,

I am also looking for those type of bento when I was in Japan, but I can't really find it. I saw some website introduce the heating system bento where you can buy from vending machine, but I can't find the vending machine.
