Low Sugar Chocolate Cake

 How do you know that you’ve been in lockdown too long? You’ve come up with a chocolate incarnation of banana bread.  This was made in response to my youngest son’s 7am request for chocolate cake. It is deliciously moist, not very sweet and the cocoa masks the taste of the banana.  We were pleasantly surprised :-)

Chocolate cake recipe - captured for posterity:
