Banana Cake with Chocolate Ripple

I love cake.
I mean, who doesn't love cake???
I can't think of one person who doesn't love cake!
Not one.
Because cake, people, is delicious!
Especially this cake!
Banana Cake With Chocolate Ripple.
I had you at Chocolate Ripple, right???
I know.
Who can say no to Chocolate Ripple?
If you know of someone who doesn't like Chocolate Ripple, stay away from them.
People who don't like chocolate are NOT to be trusted!
I mean.....
Looks delicious, right?
Trust me.
It IS delicious!
But don't take my word for it.....
Make it yourself, and take your word for it!
Go ahead!!
This recipe is fantastic!
I modified a few different recipes to come up with this one that I think is FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!
But again, don't take my word for it.......take yours!



3/4 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
4-5 very ripe bananas
3 cups of flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup plain yogurt
Chocolate Ripple
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp cinnamon



Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine ingredients for Chocolate Ripple in small bowl. Set aside.

Grease and flour Bundt pan well. Don't skimp on this step. I greased my pan with plenty of butter and floured it liberally.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time beating well before each egg.
Combine dry ingredients together, and add to creamed mixture, alternately with yogurt.
Batter will be thick.

Spread 1/3 of batter on bottom of greased and floured Bundt pan.
Sprinkle with half the Chocolate Ripple mixture.

Cover with another 1/3 of batter, remaining Chocolate Ripple mixture, and finally, the remaining batter.

Bake for about 50 - 60 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 15 minutes in pan.
Remove to wire rack until completely cooled.

Serve and enjoy!
