Chocolate Bottom Banana Square

 I saw Sonia  and Cathy did this,and this is one of the bloggers favourites and I wonder how it tastes.I get this recipe from Sonia, and agreed with her, this chocolate banana square was super soft.The chocolate part a bit dry,the banana part was so soft ,but it's indeed still very nice .Here's the recipe that I adapted from Sonia's blog:

125 gm butter,softened
120 gm sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla/rum(I used rum)
220 gm ripe smashed banana
180 gm cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Line 8 " square tin with baking paper.
Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda,add in salt, set aside.
Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Drizzle in the eggs,vanilla/rum and mashed bananas,beating thoroughly.
Add in flour mixture and mix well.
Divide the batter into half.
Add the cocoa powder to one portion of the batter.
Spread cocoa butter in the baking pan, followed by the other half plain batter.Smooth the top.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 C for 30 minutes.
Cool  and cut into squares,serve.

I don't think the little dry chocolate part will be a problem. The banana part looks soft and fluffy. I would love to have a piece.
