Happy Weekend food lovers !! ^^

Today in my kitchen, I will bring back the famous couple of baking and sweet treats: Chocolate and Banana !! Yes I know, I kinda have a serious obsession with it, from my all time favorite breakfast Nutella and Banana Sandwiches, my Chocolate Banana Bread to the Banana Chocolate Smoothie I order everytime, you know that feeling when your head say no and get back to the gym and your hand just keep grabbing food, that describes perfectly my situation 😉

So without further talking, let’s get into the kitchen and bake this lovely Banana Cake with Chocolate Frosting. It’s moist, airy, aromatic with the bananas and a hint of ground cinnamon. The frosting is shiny, ooey gooey and not too sweet to balance with the cake, and even though it looks a little clumsy (or did I intend to frost it that way to create that “homemade effect” ^^), it tastes beautiful and delicious. And in case you there’s chocolate frosting left, prepare some fresh fruits (bananas, berries…) to enjoy with it, or as I do, take a spoon and lick all the goodness left (I know that’s a guilty pleasure, but I did use dark chocolate to reduce the sweetness 😉 )
