ABC - Nut-Crusted Chocolate-Banana Swirl Cake

Well, it's been a while since I last posted, and a lot has changed. I now have a 3 month baby boy which means I didn't do much baking over the holidays. I missed baking so I thought what better way to get back into it than joining up with the Avid Baker's Challenge. It's only a once a month baking and blogging commitment so I thought I would give it a try. Plus, they're baking out of one of my favorite cookbooks - the Weekend Baker. I'm a little late on posting this one but with starting back to work this week I just didn't have time to get it done by the 3rd.

This month's recipe was the Nut-Crusted Chocolate-Banana Swirl Cake. I figured it must be good because the banana muffins from the cookbook are delicious. It certainly didn't disappoint. It was moist and I loved the mixture of plain banana cake with chocolate banana cake. The only issue I had was with the nuts sticking to the pan, but they sure were delicious to pull out of the pan and eat alone.
