Only thing was, when it came time to eating it, they both said they were too full for a slice. So other than taking a quarter for ourselves. I divided the cake in two and packed it for them both to take home and share with their respective families and friends.
Its quite chocolaty, but the hidden banana comes through quite strong too. Its a very moist cake and reminded me a little of chocolate gateau sponge. I think this cake would benefit from a dollop of cream or even ice-cream.
