Choco coffee banana cake

I used to drink lots of coffee and was addicted to it but i have stopped drinking coffee and gave an end to my addictions as lots of caffeine is not good for are health but i still love the aroma of coffee cannot resist myself in using them in this recipe .. so wanted to use this aromatic ingredient in m cake..

The coffee adds to the dark color to the cake as well as also adds a aromatic flavor too. This cake can be made in  microwave mode as well. This cake is perfect for if you want to bake a good cake in a very short time. It’s a perfect snack to be given to kids.
