Moist Marble Banana Cake Recipe @

Am obsessed with marble cake  or bread.  So far I have baked  Eggless Marble Banana CakeBanana 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!
