  1. […] whatscookingwithruthie.comThis is an oil-free recipe. The mixture of mashed bananas and eggs whites keeps the cake moist.  […]

  2. This looks and sounds awesome Ruthie! The moisture of the banana is a natural “oil” making your cakes and even banana breads moist! I can’t wait to try this. I love everything chocolate and I love the combination of chocolate and banana. Thanks for sharing.
