For the Banana Brownie Cake:

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Chocolate Ganache (optional):

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) square baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mash the Bananas: In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until they’re smooth. You can use a fork or a potato masher for this.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined. Then, add the eggs and vanilla extract. Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Blend the Batter: Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Avoid overmixing; you want a smooth batter.
  6. Add the Mashed Bananas: Gently fold the mashed bananas into the batter until evenly distributed.
  7. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Be careful not to overbake; you want the brownie cake to be moist.
  9. Cool: Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Prepare the Chocolate Ganache (Optional): If you want to add an extra layer of chocolatey goodness, heat the heavy cream until it’s almost boiling and pour it over the semisweet chocolate chips. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth. Pour the ganache over the cooled cake and let it set.
  11. Slice and Serve: Once the ganache has set (or if you skip the ganache, once the cake has cooled), slice the Banana Brownie Cake into squares and serve.


  • For extra texture and flavor, consider adding 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, to the batter before baking.
  • You can enhance the banana flavor by using very ripe bananas with plenty of brown spots.
  • If you’re short on time, you can skip the chocolate ganache and still enjoy a delicious banana brownie cake.
  • Serve your Banana Brownie Cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special treat.

Enjoy your homemade Banana Brownie Cake! Whether it’s for a family gathering, a potluck, or just a sweet treat at home, this cake is sure to be a hit.
