A great way to use up ripe bananas, this cake calls for two of them, mashed with the sweet dessert wine Vin Santo. This mixture is added to the vanilla-laced cake batter. Once the ingredients are thoroughly combined, chocolate chips are carefully folded in and the cake is baked until golden. Before slicing the cake into wedges, dust the surface of it with cinnamon and powdered sugar.

Ingredients

  • 285 grams butter (softened)
  • 125 grams powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coffee (vanilla-flavored)
  • 385 grams flour
  • 35 grams cocoa powder
  • ground cinnamon
  • salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • sugar

Directions

  1. Cream the butter using a hand mixer, and then add the sugar and vanilla, and mix until smooth.
  2. Sieve the flour with the cocoa powder, and a pinch of cinnamon and salt, and add to the mixture.
  3. Mix vigorously and divide into 2 doughballs.
  4. Allow the dough to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Shape each dough ball into a 4-centimeter diameter cylinders. Avoid holes forming in the dough by flattening by hand and then rolling into a cylinder.
  6. Wrap each cylinder in plastic film and leave in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  8. Beat the egg yolk.
  9. Cut the cylinders into 1.5-centimeter thick disks and brush with the egg yolk.
  10. Place on sheet of parchment paper sprinkled with sugar. Turn disks two or three times to allow the sugar crystals to completely cover the disks both sides.
  11. Place on a baking sheet spaced apart.
  12. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
  13. Allow to cool before serving.
