About the cook: My passion started sitting in front of the television as a young boy, watching food network with my mom, dad and sister. From there I moved to the kitchen where I practiced simple dishes: cakes pies, and cookies, while trying not to burn my hand on the oven, to later in life using my family as guinea pigs when I started my first catering business...
About the dish: Delicious made-from-scratch chocolate cake with the perfect mix of smooth chocolate, and ripe bananas. A dessert so good that you won’t know it’s good for you.

Pour half of the batter into a separate bowl. In one bowl, fold in the 3 tbl of cocoa powder; in the other, mix in the peanut butter.
Now pour half of the peanut butter batter at the bottom of the lined tin. Spread out with a spatula, then do the same with all chocolate batter. Repeat with the remainder of the PB batter, and use fork or toothpick to create swirl with light peanut butter and chocolate.
