Excellent cake. The chocolate and nuts raise it above a normal banana cake. I used brazil nuts which worked very well. I didn't have vanilla sugar so added a teaspoon of vanilla essence instead. I probably used too larger cake tin, a 20 - 23cm round would have given better depth to the cake. - 01 Mar 2013
