Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2)
  • 55 g semisweet chocolate (about 2 oz) melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder sifted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Method

In large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in bananas, semisweet chocolate and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Stir in dark chocolate and 1 cup of the pecans.

Scrape into parchment paper–lined 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) cake pan, smoothing top. Sprinkle with remaining pecans.

Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs clinging, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely in pan, about 2 hours. Lift out onto cutting board; cut into squares. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
