This pretty Banana and White Chocolate Party Bundt Cake is a great way of using up any over ripe bananas. Plus its colourful sprinkles and white chocolate topping will make it appealing to kids.
Regular Mummy Mishaps recipe readers will know that I frequently share bakes on my blog that feature over ripe bananas. Ultimately, I just hate food waste, and bananas that look a little sorry for themselves, always add such natural sweetness and banana flavour to cakes.
Also, incorporating any fruit or veg into a cake is a sneaky way of getting some extra goodness into my boys!
Obviously this cake is not that healthy by any means, because I have decorated it with some white chocolate and some colourful edible sprinkles.
That is allowed on this occasion though, because I have called it a party cake afterall.
I love the little brown flecks inside each slice that derives from the bananas.
Recipe for Banana and White Chocolate Party Bundt Cake
200g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
2 over ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g self raising flour
100g white chocolate, melted
Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan oven)
Grease and line a bundt tin - I used a Gugelhupf Tin (roughly 22cm)
Cream the butter and sugar for a few minutes until creamy, soft and pale.
Add your bananas, if they are very over ripe they will mash easily when
beaten with the mixing tool of your cake mixer . Beat the bananas into
the sugar and butter mixture.
Add the eggs and the vanilla extract and beat well until smooth
Now add the flour and mix in to combine it well
Put the batter into the tin and bake in the oven for 30-35 mins until
cooked right through
Allow the cake to cool and then remove onto a plate/stand
Drizzle the melted white chocolate all over the cake and then sprinkle
some edible sprinkles all over the top
