Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then add the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Mix to combine.
  3. Pour batter into a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  4. Spread whipped topping over cooled cake and place sliced bananas on top. Store in refrigerator.

There were several things that appealed to me about this cake, not the least of which was that it called for 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa which told me this would be good and chocolaty. I also liked the butter and shortening combo, knowing I’d get the best of both - the incomparable flavor of the butter and the added moistness from the shortening. I did notice there was no salt in the recipe, so I added half a teaspoon, but it was not enough to help the surprising lack of flavor I found with this cake, in spite of the generous amount of cocoa. The bottom line is that this was a mildly chocolate cake, rather light in color, and not nearly as moist as I would have liked. It’s an ok cake but not something I’d consider making again. Perhaps it’s buttermilk, oil and/or coffee that are the deciding factors that make a chocolate cake moist and boldly chocolate. I did not use the frozen whipped topping or the bananas, choosing instead to use my own chocolate buttercream frosting.

This was a nice little chocolate cake. The bananas and some light whipping cream added a nice lightly sweet change from the usual sweet icing. Thanks for sharing Anna.
