BANANA CAKE – CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT TOPPING

12 November 2009

After a short discussion with a friend of mine, I remembered that in the past I have added the following topping to my banana cake with great success!

1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
¾ c. crushed peanuts
½ c. brown sugar

1.      In a small bowl, mix together chocolate chips, chopped peanuts and brown sugar. Before baking Banana Cake, sprinkle over batter.
2.      Bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

¾ c. margarine
1 ½ c. white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 ripe bananas, mashed
3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
¾ c. sour cream


1.      Preheat oven to 350º.  Grease and flour a 9×13” pan.  Sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.

2.      In a large bowl, cream the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and mashed bananas.  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream, mixing just until incorporated.  Pour batter into prepared pan. *If you are planning on using the Chocolate Chip Peanut Topping, now is the time!*


3.      Bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.


*This is absolutely fantastic as a base to an ice cream cake…frosted with chocolate. SCRUMMY YUMMY!!!
