This weeks' TWD was a match made in heaven. I mean chocolate and banana, in cake form? I can't think of a more delicious combination! I couldn't wait to try my hand at Dorie's Black and White Banana Loaf. I decided to make 2 mini loaves and a mini round so I could test out different marbling techniques.
I tried the original recipe's method with one of the loaves, and the layering method with the other. For the round, I tried the method my mom had always used to make marble cake-
filling the pan with the plain batter and then dropping in spoonfuls of the chocolate. All 3 were equally delicious however, the original recipe's method yielding the most marbling throughout. I love experiments when they involve cake!
