Flourless Chocolate Banana Cake

Tonight, I stayed home with my youngest sister to just hang out and watch a movie (not that me, in all of my lameness, normally actually go OUT on Friday night...). BUT, we decided to watch a movie, and shared the sentiment that we wanted to gorge ourselves on food that was bad for us. Deciding that wasn't EXACTLY a good idea, I decided to check out Elana's recipes for some legal junk food (aka, CHOCOLATE). I found this recipe for Flourless Chocolate Banana Cake, and it came out LOVELY. Light and fluffy, chocolatey - really hit the spot! My aunt is visiting, and has recently gone gluten-free as well, and she loved it too :-) It was a quick and easy recipe, and all the ingredients were readily available in the house, so it was great.

Soo...basically, I wake up, realize I have no lunch, and throw a can of soup and a bowl in my car. EPICFAIL.
