Banana Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Banana Cake with Chocolate Glaze is a classic cake with rich, moist banana cake layers, accented with cinnamon. The whole thing is covered in a thick chocolate glaze. Delicious!

It explains that men can sometimes get overly involved in their projects, spending more time analyzing the data then cooking a real meal. And how they can bring an ‘Iron Chef’ attitude to the kitchen, wanting to compete rather then feed the kids.

I have seen men take more time thinking than doing, but I am not affected by this male ‘foodie’ phenomenon. Actually, I have quite the opposite problem. The more I become interested in food, the fewer recipes Handsome seems to remember, or want to cook, stating that I would just make it better anyway. Could this be because he works more, harder, and goes to school most weeknights? Probably. But every once in a while, it is nice to come home to something someone else prepared for you.

Even if it is steak-ums and macaroni and cheese. I’m OK with that. 😉

Especially when there’s banana cake with chocolate glaze for dessert.

So, would a man have been unable to make this simple banana cake without first trying to figure out how to inject pure whole bananas into a batter mixture using a hadron collider (imagine that mess) or is this man ‘foodie’ handicap all just an excuse for some men never being asked to help out in the kitchen?

That's exactly what my husband does! When he wants a certain food, he always begs me to make it because he says I always make it better. But he is very talented himself. Haha, anyhow, I want this cake so so bad! Chocolate!

Hi! I am planning to make this for my friend's birthday. Is it ok if i make the batter the day before, cover and refrigerate? Will the cake still turn out the same? Thank you! :)

Hi Elisa, I wouldn't make the batter the night before.. The problem with refrigerating the batter and then baking the cake is that the butter and eggs won't be at room temperature, which effects how they bake. I would say you could make the cake the night before, cover/wrap in plastic wrap and leave on the counter. If I recall correctly, this cake comes together pretty quickly. Because its a glaze, it doesn't have to be perfect either. If you are rushed for time, don't try to cover the entire cake with the glaze (it's hard because it's not firm like an icing and you will get glaze everywhere) -instead pour some glaze on top using the back of a spoon spread it out to the edges leaving drops running down the side. That always looks cool. Hope this helps!

I have over-ripe bananas sitting on my table and have been looking for something other than the standard banana bread to make with them. Somehow I found this recipe and now I have what I need. I'll be making this beautiful cake today; though I'll probably put peanut butter frosting between the cake layers. Dudette and Hubby love bananas and peanut butter. :)
