Eggless Banana Sheet Cake with Chocolate Fudge Icing


I dont have a sheet pan, but i want to bake a sheet cake for quite a long time. I had this idea of baking a banana sheet cake with a thick chocolate fudgy icing over it. I made this few days back and it was perfect. I made this using the ingredients which i have on hand and the cake turned out super soft and spongy more than i expected.





I have been in banana cake mood for quite a long time. Rather than mood, it is because of the abundant of banana available in the house at that time. I was baking banana bread, banana muffins and then this. 



This cake is great with a cup of chai, coffee or milk. The cake itself is not so sweet, it is perfect. If you want a sweeter cake then increase the amount of sugar in it. But i think the sweetness from the frosting is enough to make it perfectly sweet.



Even though i call this as sheet cake, but the cake is little on the thicker side. Because i used a small square pan for baking this. If you have a sheet pan, then use that or a bigger pan will work good. But keep in mind, the thinner the cake batter is on the pan, the less time you have to bake this. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
