Chocolate Banana Cake Tarts

Pin It Now!

These cake tarts are inspired by Nasi Lemak Lover, Butter cake tarts. Since I am making chocolate filling I add some cocoa powder inside the tart pastry as well.

Well it seems hard to locate the pastry from the cake :P Anyway, these tarts are lovely, my kids like it!

Ingredients: yield about 27g x 6pcs (7 1/2” tart mould)
~ Pastry
45g butter
25g icing sugar
1 yolk
Pinch of salt

90g cake flour
5g cocoa powder

1 egg
30g vegetable oil
40g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt

80g plain flour
10g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

Some chocolate chips for topping

1. Beat butter till creamy. Add in icing sugar and continue beat till well combine.

2. Add in yolk and salt. Mix till well incorporate.

3. Fold in sifted flour in 2 batches. Do not over mix.

4. Cover the dough with cling wrap and keep in fridge for 30 minutes.

  1. I like this fusion cake + tart idea. They look very delicious!

  2. If you made a yellow tart case with a choc cake filling or vice versa, hmmm.. then maybe it'll look obviously different.

  3. not a problem to me with double choc here..i'm already used to eating choc cakes all the time!

  4. I think this looks pretty and very delicious too!
