|Trying to figure out what to do with those super-ripe bananas you have in your kitchen?
Use them to make:
ROBERTA'S CHOCOLATE CHIP
This is my mom's chocolate chip banana cake recipe.
(c)1972-2012 and beyond, Roberta Heller
I've updated the recipe a bit.
1-3/4 sticks of
1-1/2 cups of Sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups banana, mashed
(about 1 or 2 ripe bananas)
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped or
ground walnuts or pecans
1 cup semi-sweet
You can also use two - large 6 muffin tins to make 12 banana muffins
I use butter instead of margarine.
Fold in 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips when you add the nuts.
It comes out best when you use a bundt pan.
Tips for a great banana cake:
Grease your pan well with butter/margarine, and coat the
buttered pan with ground walnuts or pecans.
it creates a nice crispy crust and the cake comes nicely
out of the pan when cool.
Use a cake tester or knife to see if the cake is done; the knife should come out clean.
|Special thanks to my mom, Roberta Heller, for this AWESOME recipe.|
