Banana Walnut Cake with Dark Chocolate

This quarantine has become a food trap for us and our family. Forcing us to stay at home (for a valid reason of course) has increased the frustration and stress in an exponential way.

Some famous television chefs suggest dusting old grandmothers’ recipes, which is one of the recipes I will be proposing today. The recipe can be used with bananas or apples.

As we religiously prepare recipe after recipe I also highly suggest that everyone also takes up a daily work out because as the Latin Sages said: “mens sana in corpore sana” (a healthy mind in a healthy body).

For now, let’s go back to our delicious recipe. When I thought about making banana dark chocolate nut cake I didn’t expect it to be so good. It really amazed me, with its soft and fluffy dough enriched with crunchy pieces of walnuts.

I used 70% Modica chocolate which I described in another post about the cake “Almond Cake with Modica Chocolate“.

But you can use any other type of 70% dark chocolate.
