Extra Chocolate for Drizzling
Make the Banana Cake:
For whatever reason, this banana cake is my absolute favorite! For this cake, I baked it in my 8"x3" round pan. It takes at least an hour to bake at 350-degrees (F) in this pan. (Less in other pans, see the original recipe for other baking pans.)
If you are not patient, the cake can, and will, fall in the center. So, give it time. It bakes rather dark on the outside. (See my post about Why Do Cakes Fall? for more info about this.)
Make the Chocolate Icing:
This icing has become known as the "chocolate cloud icing" in my house after my husband called it that they first time he tried it.

I always store this cake in the refrigerator.
