This is for Sue, and all you other chocolate fiends out there, from my 365 Chocolate Desserts cookbook. Yes, I know Sue wants me to decide I don't love this cookbook and send it directly to her, because she loves chocolate that much. I'm just not ready to relinquish it yet. So you'll have to settle for another recipe.
This one is made with boxes, and is very easy. Of course, box mixes being in short supply in my house, I created my own "box mix" base, just in case anyone else out there is supermarket-phobic and box-mix-lacking.
CHOCOLATE DESSERT #146:
Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake
1 Devils Foods Cake Mix, without pudding*
2 bananas, mashed
1 box instant vanilla, chocolate or butterscotch pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Dump all ingredients in a bowl. Beat for 3 minutes. Turn into a greased bundt pan. Bake at 350F for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick in the center of the cake comes out clean. Frost with whatever icing suits your fancy.
*If you have no cake mix, use these handy dandy dry ingredients:
1-3/4 cups flour
1-1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1-1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp buttermilk powder or dry milk powder
Proceed as above, dumping all ingredients in the bowl.
See? Absurdly easy. However, I never said this would be low calorie. Just easy and good.
