An exceptionally moist Pesach cake, this is an easy recipe that yields a banana chocolate chip cake that you won't believe is Kosher for Pesach! This moist cake is perfectly flavored with banana and chock full of chocolate chips! Topped with a smooth, sweet icing, this is the perfect Pesach cake to make, especially when you have a few extra bananas lying around.

 

For a year-round variation, try this simple banana bread recipe by Brynie Greisman.

    I just made this cake now. I don't use margarine, so i replaced it with oil. (1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp). My cake was done in 35 minutes. It's not nearly as high as yours. It's only about 2 1/4 inches tall. If I had known i would have just used a square pan, cuz it looks a bit silly being so short.

    Does this recipe call for 1 tsp of salt and only ¾ cup of matzoh cake meal?

    I made this cake today with a few changes and it is fantastic!!! GREAT texture with Rich banana flavor and very moist. Does NOT take like a Passover Cake! Plus, it is VERY EASY to make!!! I followed another reviewers suggestions and substituted 1 Cup Toasted Chopped Walnuts for the Chocolate Chips and used 4 Large Bananas. My cake was done in 36 minutes on Convection Bake Setting. I heavily greased the pan because cakes always stick in my 12 Cup Bundt pan. I would suggest using a 10 Cup Bundt pan instead of the standard 12 Cup, for a higher looking cake. I like to weigh my ingredients rather then measure them but I followed this recipe & measured the ingredients in Cups because the conversion was too off. This is the amount of ingredients I used and what they weighed (after I used measuring cups): 104 grams Cake Meal, 77 grams Potato Starch, 106 grams Toasted Chopped Walnuts, Next time I make this cake, I will just use the gram amount and skip the measuring cups. If you like Banana Cake, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND making this cake!!!! You will not be disappointed!

    Easy

    I love this recipe because you don't have to separate eggs. I used it to make 12 muffins. They'll Be perfect for Pesach breakfasts!

    I've never tried it for this specific recipe but it seems like you would be able to substitute the margarine for oil.

    use walnuts instead of chocolate for an outstanding cake

    I used 1 C of chopped walnuts in place of the chocolate chips (and increased the bananas to four). The cake was outstanding, especially by the 3rd and 4th days.

    Chocolate Chip Amount?

    There is no amount listed on the recipe list (nor are the chips actually listed at all). How much is it recommended be added? Also, a little confused on how the addition of baking soda/salt keeps this Kosher for Passover. Please advise.

    I know not everyone uses these products, but I have baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla sugar, all kosher l'Pesach with a the B'datz Aida Hacharidit. (I live in Yerushalayim).

    Baking soda and baking powder are not made from any ingredients that are chometz. Hence, their ability to be kosher for Passover. As far as chocolate chips. I would add 1-1 and1/2 cups to the batter. Thanks for pointing that out to us.
