This cake is very moist and delicious. I, too, used regular-sized chocolate chips. I also realized that I had no buttermilk, so I used vanilla yogurt in place of it. This is a perfect cake to make for picnics/potlucks, since it would travel well, no messy icing, etc. I think it would taste just as good without the nuts on top, if there are those with nut allergies. Thanx for sharing this. I will make it again!
This cake is irresistable! Very moist and tasty. I couldn't stop at one slice!!! I used regular chocolate chips in place of the miniature chips. My bananas were soft and ripe, so I didn't mash them first. I just blended the whole bananas in the bowl with the batter, and the beaters mashed them. My whole family thinks the cake is yummy! (I don't think it will last the night!)
