Good for a beginner and easy to make, but the result is not too brilliant. I wish it had more of a banana taste and less of chocolate, but I think adding more banana would change the thickness of the dough. Any suggestions?

Also, in the US, cream is easy to find, but nearly impossible in Romania, so I replaced with sour cream. The ganache came out too thick. What did you use for cream?

Thank you for the recipe :)

The result is brilliant but not what you expected, first off all this is a chocolate cake - try to cook Banana Bread, is more banana flavour and no chocolate.
In Romania I buy "La Dorna" cream(a blue-red tetrapak) - you can find it everywhere, in Carrefour markets I found it. Sometimes I bought President Cream or Milii, ZuZu, but my favourite is La Dorna.
