Banana Chocolate Chips Cake

My family loves to eat banana very much. However, we cant finish the whole bunch of banana, there bound to be 1 or 2 or 3 over-riped banana to be thrown away !! After reading Hugbear, a full-time working mum to 2 boys, who enjoys baking and cooking, sharing her tips and advice in the world of baking. Since i have the ingredients found in her recipe, and with the help from Jayne, we decided to bake one ourselves. We made a few changes from the recipe.
  • 125gm of butter only which is the left-over from the Chococlae Chip cookies
  • 150gm of castor sugar
  • As per my girl's request, i added 2 tbsp choc chips
  • 2 normal size eggs ($1.80 per tray type of size-egg)
  • 3 riped (not over-riped) Del Monte banana
  • No dairy whip cream added as i do not have any in the referigrator

Wow, you have been baking a lot. Way to go!! Not sure if you know this tip, but you can freeze bananas that are becoming too ripe. The skin gets black but the inside is fine for baking. I freeze it in a freezer bag.
