"The best cake I've ever had" according to my 8-y-o. No fat either (well...except for optional chocolate chips!).

  1. Mash bananas; push to side, leaving a space along bowl's side.
  2. Beat eggs along empty side of bowl, then combine with bananas.
  3. Stir in sugar, applesauce, vanilla and salt.
  4. Shake lightly and evenly across surface of batter, the flour and soda; mix just enough to incorporate.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Go easy on chocolate chips because they can overwhelm the cake.
  6. Pour into greased and floured 7"x11" pyrex glass baking dish (or muffin tins, bundt rounds, etc).
  7. Bake 40 minutes at 350-degrees (less for muffins, etc.).
  8. Frosting is unnecessary but cream cheese (8 oz) & butter (4 Tb) with any flavoring (any syrup, orange concentrate) is yummy.
