Banana Chocolate Cake

Back from my 2 months hibernation with a delicious Chocolate Banana Cake/ Banana Chocolate Cake, whichever way you like it to be called... *smiles*.... We had this cake from a hotel that we had stayed during our holidays and we, especially the kids loved it!!! Though not the exact replica of the original cake we had, this one did have some similarities somewhere.
