I'm not exactly sure how we ended up with 5 nearly rotten bananas. It is one of those situations that makes me sort of bend my head side ways a bit and say "huh"? I have a few theories....maybe tucking away the blender for the holiday party wasn't the best strategy after all. Or could it have been buying that case of 2 gazillion Eggo waffles from Costco caused us not to eat cereal with fresh sliced bananas swimming in a bath of organic milk?
Whatever the cause of the nearly neglected bananas, I'm here to declare that "I will not let my dear bananas go bad....I can and will save you" . Ok, does anyone else talk to their fruit....or write about their nearly rotten fruit? Nod you head up and down, please!
So here you go, a worthy way to honor the banana!
Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 5 ripe super ripe bananas
- 1/2 butter melted
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
Mix flour, baking powder & cinnamon in a bowl.
In a second bowl, mix bananas, butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract.
Next, combine dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Don't over mix...it's kinda like your pancake batter...no need to over stir here.
Pour into an ungreased cake pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Bake on 350 for 30 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean!
Serves: 12 large slices
