Was trying to use up bananas that were too ripe..Flavor was good, but IF I make this again, will definitely double the chocolate-nut, cinn-sugar mixture as I thought it was a little dry and needed a touch more
Two words: add salt. I assume the omission of salt from the recipe was intentional, so against my better judgment, I made the recipe as printed without adding a pinch of salt to the batter. The finished product, to me, tasted a little flat. On my next piece, I sprinkled a tiny bit of salt on the slice...delicious! That's exactly what it needs. I would recommend adding at least 1/2 teaspoon salt to the batter to really take this cake to the next level. Otherwise, it was a really nice, moist cake that baked up beautifully in exactly 45 minutes.
I made this for the first time last night. It is delicious. Other than not chopping the chocolate chips, I followed the recipe exactly. I would not change a thing and I will definitely make it again, most likely for the office next Friday. DELICIOUS!!
This cake is just great!! I make it all the time, probably at least 30 times since I've been living here in Germany. I've often made it with applesauce replacing the butter, and yogurt, thickened and unthickened, to replace the sour cream. I'm pretty sure that changes the calorie count significantly, but I don't know how much. I'd heard that replacing the fats make baked goods go stale faster, but this cake never lasts long enough for me to find out!! lol
YUM-O-LICIOUS! I have made this cake atleast 10 times! and everyone always wants the recipe! although its not LOW CAL OR LOW FAT :( it looks good too.
