Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

A while ago I posted this recipe for Banana Cake. It is basically banana bread in a cake pan instead of a bread pan, with frosting. Delicious, but its dense. So when I found this recipe and the first thing she says is 'this is not banana bread with frosting', I had to make it. 

Turns out its a light, airy cake with a yummy banana flavor and not to mention it has chocolate chips and a sweet cream cheese frosting. If you have ripe bananas sitting around, forget the banana bread and make this!

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
Recipe Source:

2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
1 cup Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
2 Eggs
1 1/2 cups, about 3, Ripe Bananas, mashed
2/3 cup Buttermilk
1 1/2 cup Mini Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 - 8 inch round cake pans. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt and whisk. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Turn mixer to low and add the eggs in one at time and beat until just combined. Add the bananas and mix until just combined.

3. Add flour mixture and the buttermilk to the mixture. With a wooden spoon stir in the mini chocolate chips. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans.
4. Bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove cakes from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

Frost with your favorite cream cheese frosting. I used this one.
