Awesome! This is exactly what I was looking for to use up my over ripe bananas. The cake is super moist and has the right amount of frosting needed. I will be making this again!

Made this cake this afternoon because I had some overly ripe bananas that I didn't want to lose! I made several modifications (used greek yogurt in place of part of both the butter and sour cream), used light butter rather than regular, and used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. Also cut the sugar, as it just seemed like too much, and didn't have a much in the way of chocolate chips, so I just added what I had and skipped putting them on top of the batter. It turned out splendidly though - thanks for posting this!
