This cake recipe makes a simple, one layer banana cake with a thick layer of chocolate frosting. It's perfect for snacking or dessert after family dinner

INGREDIENTS – Unsalted butter – Flour – Sugar – Baking soda – Salt – Bananas – Sour – Dark brown sugar – Eggs – Vanilla extract

Banana recipes like this one are great for using up overripe bananas!

Browning the butter delivers a ton of flavor into this simple cake recipe. Be sure to brown the butter, but not let it burn. 

The chocolate frosting has a trick to enhance the flavor - instant coffee. Don't worry, your frosting will not taste like coffee at all! The instant coffee gets mixed with a bit of hot water and added to the frosting. 

If preparing this cake in advance, wrap the cake while it's still warm tightly in plastic wrap and leave at room temperature up to 3 days. Wrapping the cake while it's warm will help keep it moist
