Chocolate Cake with Bananas and Salted Caramel Frosting is a moist, chocolatey cake filled with sliced bananas, toasted coconut and salted caramel frosting. Smothered with chocolate ganache and salted caramel sauce, this decadent cake is sure to impress.
We celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary yesterday and what better way to show my man that my heart still pitter patters for him than by baking him the ultimate chocolate cake.
The hubs is a chocoholic with a major sweet tooth. So whenever I ask him what kind of cake he feels like having – he will almost always choose chocolate.
Since I usually prefer fruity or tropical cakes, I decided to compromise (because hey – that’s what marriage is all about right?) by tweaking his favorite chocolate cake and stacked up the filling with some fun tropical add-ins like toasted coconut and sliced bananas over a salted caramel frosting.
The top of the cake is immersed in the same fun add-ins along with chocolate ganache and more salted caramel sauce pouring down the sides.
This combination of bananas and toasted coconut is like a vacation for your taste buds and also helps to balance out the sweetness from the salted caramel and chocolate.
Even though we both have different cravings – this decadent cake was a hit we both enjoyed that was filled with yumminess in every bite.
This luxurious cake will satisfy any sweet and salty craving you might be having and it’s perfect for sharing at parties or any holiday celebrations!
Cheers and hope you’ll have a slice of cake on us 🙂
