Lisa got tired of hearing me say I couldn't bake, so she started me off with this easy recipe. Of course, I'm a sucker for anything with chocolate and bananas...

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 squared semi-sweet or sweet baking chocolate
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup mashed bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Heat oil and chocolate in an 8-inch square pan in 350°F oven for about 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven.

Add water, bananas, sugar, egg, flour, salt, baking soda, and vanilla to melted chocolate mixture in the cake pan. Beat with a fork until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Spread mixture evenly in the pan.

Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes until cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool the cake, in pan, on a wire rack.

Serve the cake from the pan.
