Nutty, swirly, chocolatey Banana Bundt Cake

Take one regular banana bread recipe and jazz it up with the addition of a nutty, swirly, chocolatey centre. For my swirl I used raisins, chopped up bittersweet chocolate, dark brown sugar, chopped walnuts and mixed spice. Then I alternated it between the regular banana bread batter. The result was delicious. It just added a extra zing to the taste. A lovely chocolatey surprise! I made this one last night and by midday half of it is gone. That says it all to me.

Road trip sustenance...banana almond bundt cake

This is for a picnic we'll be having tomorrow on a road trip to the Cliffs of Moher in the west of Ireland. How can you NOT make a bundt cake when visiting cliffs? Is this generous delight not a reminder of those wondrous natural features? Anyway, haven't tasted it yet, but it sure smelled delicious coming out of the oven...will update tomorrow...
