Pancake Mix BLACK Chocolate Banana Bread

This cake is stuffed with sweet bananas and dried fruits. The slight bitterness and mild sweetness is just like a carrot and stick.

130 g
★Black cocoa
20 g
☆Dark chocolate (I used Meiji Black chocolate)
1 (55 g)
50 ml

70 g
40~50 g
2 (with peels removed - 160 g)
Mixed dried fruits
30 g


1. Line a pound cake mold with parchment paper.
2. Leave the margarine, eggs and milk at room temperature. Combine the ★ ingredients.
3. Chop the bananas and put in a heat resistant dish. Microwave for 50 seconds~1 minute at 600W☆, then mash well with a fork.
4. If you are using fully ripened bananas, you don't need to microwave in Step 3. Just mash with a fork.
5. Put ☆ ingredients in a heat resistant bowl and microwave for 30~40 seconds at 600W.
6. When the chocolate starts melting, mix with the milk really well and cool down the mixture slightly. Be careful not to let it boil over or heat too much!
7. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200℃.
8. Using a whisk, put softened margarine and sugar into a bowl, mix until white.
9. Add eggs one at a time, whisking well between additions.
10. Whisk until the mixture is creamy, then add mashed banana (Step 3). The mixture may separate as shown in this photo, but it's ok.
11. Sift in the ★ ingredients in 2~3 batches, mixing well between additions.
12. Using a rubber spatula. Add dried fruits and mix together lightly.
13. Add the chocolate mixture (Step 6) little by little, turning the bowl and mix with the rubber spatula from the bottom to blend. ※Do not over mix!
14. Pour in the dough, drop the mold slightly onto a kitchen surface to remove air bubbles☆. Turn down the oven temperature to 350°F/180℃, bake for 50 minutes.
15. Cover the cake with aluminum foil if it looks like it will burn.
16. It's done if the bamboo skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean! Let it cool down on a cake cooling rack .
17. This cake will taste even better if you leave it for half a day or overnight. Keep it in the fridge in the hot season .
18. I used the Meiji Black chocolate.
