Banana, Walnut, Rum and Chocolate Cake by claremanson Banana, Walnut, Rum and Chocolate Cake by claremanson
Banana, walnut, rum, banana chips, chocolate chips and chocolate ganache! This is certainly a big and bold cake with a lot of flavour and attitude. A special cake, for a very special friends birthday.

Lee loves banana cake, he once bought me bananas, eggs, sugar etc round my house so i could bake him a cake while he was here. Since then i mentioned banana and walnut and he got very excited which gave me an idea. I searched many recipes and ideas until i finally found this one on the BBC good food website [link] Of course me being me i just had to adapt the recipe to put my own stamp on it. Instead of vanilla i added rum, chocolate chips to the cake mix and baked it in two tins instead of one so i could fill the center as well as the top of the cake with chocolate ganache. I used two kinds of chocolate ganache, milk and semi sweet then topped it off with banana chips as chopped bananas would have discoloured too quickly plus the chips have lots of flavour, chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.

This cake is mouthwatering and looks utterly delicious! How did everyone say it tasted? (Did you try a piece?)

they all loved it, i didn't try it as it wasn't gluten free and i don't like bananas but it did look good, i would have tried it despite not liking bananas had it been gluten free.

Why don't you like bananas? And why can't you eat things with gluten in them?

never liked the taste or smell of bananas. gluten gives me really bad stomach aches, it kind of feels like you have had a huge meal that at the end of the day everyday your stomach is having a hard time digesting it all, making you bloated and uncomfortable so i cant have anything with flour in now unless it's gluten free flour.

:giggle: eat out? whats that? i alwas eat before going ou or take snacks or packed lunch with me everywhere i go as the only person i trust to cook for me is myself. My youngest is a little dairy intolerant so i give her soya milk and yogurts but she is ok will butter and chocolate, it's just in large amounts she can not handle it. My eldest is fine with food.

banana walnut rum and chocolate cake-less.... :(

And busy as hell with work, and work, and more work, oh right, and I have to study somewhere in between as well, and find a house, and prep for my Halloweeny birthdayparty....
I have been to the doctor though, and it is what they thought it is. AND I hate needles........


You?

Only made the time for this cake because it was for my best friend else no baking for me now for a bit as far too busy with wedding stuff, kid stuff and two video games came out this month WoW expansion and Resident Evil 6 so any free time has been on relaxing with video games.

How gorgeous! I do love looking at beautiful cakes even though I don't eat them anymore (for gluten and sugar). I'm happy I can't smell this picture, haha, I'm sure it smells and tastes divine!

thank you, i don't often eat the cakes i make for other people as i don't bother using gluten free flour if i am only going to have a little bite as it's so expensive. However i did regret not making this one gluten free despite hating banana after it was done and my friend cut it open, it looked so tasty.
