Banana Chocolate Chip Snack Cake
As I was searching the recipe index of my blog this morning because I had some extremely ripe bananas that I didn’t want to waste, I realized that my recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Snack Cake was not listed there even though I was sure that I had posted the recipe to my blog once upon a time. It turns out I did post it way back when I was a novice blogger, so much of a novice that I didn’t even know how to upload photos yet but there it was….a sad little post from June 23, 2009, in plain ordinary text,with no bells, no whistles, and saddest of all, no pictures.
This recipe is so good and I make it so often that it deserves renewed attention. It’s a favorite around here.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cake
1/2 cup butter ( 1 stick), softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup apple sauce or sour cream
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 very ripe bananas)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter and gradually add sugar. Add bananas. Add eggs. Mix well.
Combine flour and baking soda and add to the creamed mixture. Add the apple sauce or sour cream. Add the vanilla. Mix well but do not over beat.
Pour the batter into a greased 9 inch square baking pan. (I have a square stoneware baking pan that I just love to use for this, but any square pan will work. Sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips till well covered. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Use a tester to make sure it is done in the middle. Cool. And enjoy. I hear it’s delicious with a tall glass of ice cold milk. Me…I like it with a hot cup of tea.
