Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by helowy

My grandmother used to send me this as a care package in college. It never lasted more than a minute! A favorite of all my friends. ETA--i recently made this with low fat sour cream. It really lost something. I recommend using full fat.

I followed this recipe EXACT- cake is not aesthetically pleasing, cooked 15 minutes longer than suuggested time and top did not cook evenly it was browned outside and middle, with a goey everywhere else. I used a 9in round standard cake pan-as for flavor- it was OK the chips did not evenly distribute, they sort of sunk to the bottom.
