In another large bowl, whisk together the eggs, mashed bananas, water, milk, oil, and vanilla extract.
  
 Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir, or whisk, until combined. You will notice that the batter is quite thin. 

 
In your baking pan apply butter. Cut the tracing paper in the shape of your baking pan and keep it in the baking pan. Pour the batter in to the prepared pan . Preheat the oven at 180 degree C. Keep the pan in oven and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  
 
 Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for an hour. Run the knife through the sides of the baking pan and turn upside down. Remove the tracing paper and the cake is done.....:)





Cut the cake into half, horizontally.

 
In a bowl Beat butter and icing sugar until fluffy. Spread this on cake and sandwich the cakes.
 

In the bowl beat the butter until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until it is light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. 

 
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Add the chocolate and beat on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is smooth and glossy (about 2 -3 minutes).

Cover the cake with frosting ans make design with a fork. Do the writing with a piping bag. Sprinkle some sugar balls on top for decoration.
 
And there your yummy Banana Cake with chocolate Fudge Frosting  is ready....to gulp....:)
