Babovka is a traditional czech recipe that is a cross between pound cake and angel food cake. I really like double color with raisins...I remember, if I was a child, I always ate the light part first and then the dark - how it say...the best in the end. And I make it now too....

You will need

3 cups plain flour
2 cups non-dairy milk (I used Alpro Vanilla milk)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 bananas, mashed
2 tsp baking powder
cocoa powder, sultanas...


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. In a large bowl stir the flour, brown sugar and baking powder. In a small bowl mix the mashed bananas with oil and milk. Mix the dry and wet ingredients until smooth. Take a babovka form or bundt ring cake and if you haven't silicone type, is good to grease it with butter and sprinkle with flour. Pour a half of dough into the form. Mix cocoa powder to the second half, add a splash of milk and mix until smooth. Mix sultanas and pour over the light dough. Bake about 40-50 minutes. Cool upside down (the babovka cake is falling down) and serve. Enjoy.

Note: If you don't like cocoa, you can't use it...mix the dried fruit (sultanas, raisin, candied peel...) into the light dough and bake.
