This is one of my daughter's favorite cakes. It's super moist and sweet enough on it's own that it doesn't need frosting. It's delicious as-is. It was originally from a Pillsbury book but I've made a few very small changes to suit our tastes.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats (I grind them up in the processor)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup ripe mashed banana (2 medium)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350'.
- Grease and flour a 13x9 inch pan and set aside (I always spray pan with Baker's Secret).
- In a medium bowl add flour, oats, baking soda, and salt, mix to blend and set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar until fluffy.
- Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
- Mix in buttermilk, bananas, and vanilla. At this point it'll look almost curdled. Just mix it well and ignore that.
- Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix to blend. The batter will be a little thick.
- Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
- Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake at 350' for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
This cake is delicious! I made it exactly as listed, down to grinding the oats. I baked it in a round cake pan so maybe that's why it took about 50 minutes to bake. No matter - it is thoroughly being enjoyed by everyone! I made this for PRMR tag game. Thanks Realtor! :)
