DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour oblong pan, 9x13x2 inches.
  • Beat all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in large mixer bowl on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on high speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 3 minutes.
  • Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake until toothpick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean, approximately 45 minutes.
  • Cool cake completely and frost with Vanilla Butter Frosting.
  • To make VANILLA BUTTER FROSTING:
  • Blend powdered sugar into butter.
  • Stir in vanilla and milk.
  • Beat until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency.
  • Hint #1. For best results, be sure the bananas you use for cakes are fully ripened. If you use firm bananas, the cake will not have the fragrance or the flavor.
  • Hint #2. To sour milk: Add 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. For this recipe, use 2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice for 2/3 cup milk.
  • Hint #3. When it comes to homemade frosting, I usually increase the recipe by one-half; so in this case, I used 4 ½ cups powdered sugar, 7 ½ tablespoons butter, and 2 ¼ teaspoons vanilla (using the same measuring spoons, 1 ½ teaspoons first, and then ½ and ¼ teaspoons vanilla).
