Am obsessed with marble cake or bread. So far I have baked Eggless Marble Banana Cake, Banana Chocolate Bread Marbled and Marble Cake but that does't stop me from trying another recipe.
Most of the recipes call for melted butter but this Moist Marble Banana Cake uses vegetable oil. It has a right amount of sweetness and stay moist even after the next day.
After experiencing and baking with banana. I must admit that using a right banana is the key to perfect cake. The banana should be ripe but firm and not too soft because soft banana contains more water, it tends to make your cake slightly wet.
Another point was about cocoa powder. Adding more cocoa means you have to add more sugar to sweeten the cake. Just add a tablespoon or two of cocoa in the batter is more than sufficient, you still get beautiful marble effect. So glad Moist Marble Banana Cake turned out incredible!
