A moist, delicious cake--my family has been making this version for years.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  2. Dissolve baking soda in water and add to batter; beat well.
  3. Add bananas.
  4. Add dry ingredients; blend.
  5. Pour chocolate chips into a separate bowl and mix with the remaining teaspoon of flour before adding to the batter (this can keep the chips from sinking to the bottom of the pan). Pour into a 9-inch square baking pan or bundt pan.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

I tried this out last night using half fat butter. It worked out really quite well. In view of the previous comments I folded 20g grated chocolate into the batter and reduced the chocolate chips to half a cup. If you're watching your weight and fancy a treat, this definitely hits the spot!

This cake was a hit!!! Everyone loved it! It was tasty and easy to make, I highly recommend. Based on another reviewers comments about the chocolate chips sinking, I added chocolated chips to the batter and I put a bunch on top (I used more than I cup of chips). The chips that sank made like a chocolate crust, but there were plenty that were in the middle and stayed on on top.
