Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

I saw this recipe posted by Oven Haven and since I happened to have 3 mostly black bananas (and had made banana bread a couple weeks ago) I thought I would give it ago. Only, you know, with chocolate.

Now, having never even eaten banana cake, I had no idea what I was in for, but this cake is a new favorite. Dense yet fluffy, lightly bannana-y, and just the right amount of chocolate. Delicious. And definitely a keeper. We didn't frost ours, preferring it lightly sweet, just as is, but a dense chocolate ganache as suggested on Oven Haven would be heavenly and make this cake the hit of any party.

9 tbsp unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp nonfat milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 ripe bananas
1/2 a 12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
Dissolve the baking soda in the milk. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar, then add in egg and baking soda mixture.
Stir in the bananas, then fold in the flour and baking powder.
Mix in chocolate chips.
Bake in an 8-inch square pan at 350F for 30-40mins, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Top with your desired icing/frosting.
