How to Make Chocolate Banana Puff Cake


  1. Chop banana into thinly slices. In a bowl, beat eggs. Crush half of walnuts roughly. (keep the rest for topping)

  3. In a sauce pan, combine 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup water and 4 tablespoons butter. Heat over medium heat. When it boils, turn off the hea, stir until butter is completely melted and then add 1/2 cup flour and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder. Stir well. Then add 2 beaten eggs little by little. Mix well with spatula until smooth. Put the batter into a pastry bag.
