Experimenting again, blame it on my genes, sorry I’m not necessarily traditional when it comes to food recipes. So let’s get creative and see if chocolate and orange can blend together.
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar cane sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/2 cup walnuts (coarsely chopped)
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
rind of 1 orange
1. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Cream the butter and white and brown sugar with an electric or hand mixer in a huge bowl then add eggs, one at a time, then add vanilla and mashed bananas. Turn the mixer off.
3. Add the walnuts, chocolate morsels, and the orange rind.
4. Add the dry flour mixture into the wet mixture (avoid over-stirring, just combine them together so you moisten the dry flour with the wet mixture).
5. Pour on Pam-sprayed loaf pan at 375 degrees F for 3o minutes. Test the mixture by pricking the middle with the pointed end of a barbecue stick: if no wet cake sticks onto the end of the stick, you’re done. Make sure to keep the cake inside the oven for 10 more minutes after baking.
6. Take the cake out and let it cool for about 20 minutes before cutting into squares.
See, the recipe isn’t too complicated. Enjoy each bite of these chocolatey, orangey banana squares!
