Chocolate Banana Fruits Cake

Pin It Now!

When I check my pantry I was surprise I had bought a lot of dried fruits. Initially they are for baking scone. However I seldom bake scone lately.

Fruits cakes are mainly baked during Christmas season. And it is best way to use out most of the dried fruits. However I’m not big fan of fruits cake. It is too rich and too sweet for me. Therefore I incorporate those dried fruits in my chocolate banana cake. It ends up very well. Banana does give nice aroma and soft texture to the cake while the dried fruits give nice chewy bites! Although I only use 1 tablespoon of sugar for the whole cake, the cake still taste sweet ^.^

50ml milk

200g dried fruits (I’m using dates,cranberries,winter melon,raisin,tomato,cherry)
