Banana flavour permeates every layer of this pretty square. If your family loves banana cream pie and chocolate cream pie, you'll find this will be a new favourite. For a pretty presentation, slice into squares and garnish each with a few banana slices and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Run your knife under hot water between cuts for smooth edges.
