In another large bowl beat eggs.
Add brown sugar and mashed bananas,  continue to beat for half a minute.
Pour vanilla extract and vegetable oil and stir with whisk .
Slowly add half the flour mixture, continue beating. Add yoghurt and then  the rest of the flour.  Beat just until combined and smooth.

Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake at 350ºF (180ºC) for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

I poured some batter and chocolate into a smaller pan to prepare a little cake for my boyfriend, he couldn’t wait until next day to taste this cake…
Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack.

Then tip the cake out of the pan and let it cool completely on the wire rack.
Wrap in plastic film and put in the fridge until next day.
Place the  chopped chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. Set aside.
Place heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring just to a boil.
 Immediately pour over the chocolate and let stand, without stirring, for a few minutes until chocolate has softened.  Then stir gently until smooth.
 Let cool slightly before using.
Cover the cake with the ganache, the chopped chocolate bar and drizzle with some caramel sauce.

I hope you like it and enjoy!
