I've tried a few different banana bread recipes, and this one has been my favorite so far. Enjoy!

Once I started making this cake I never went back to banana bread again. It's so delicious. I love it warm from the oven when it is light and fluffy, but it's equally good the next day. It seems to get more dense, but remains moist. It says it serves 16, but my husband and I can easily polish this off in two days. I make it for friends when they have babies and leave it on their doorsteps from the cake fairies who always come to celebrate the birth of a new baby.


Banana Snack Cake

1 cup sugar 1 cup butter softened
2 eggs ½ cup buttermilk*
1 cup (2 medium) mashed bananas 1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour 1 cup rolled oats
1 ½ tsp. baking soda ½ tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips ½ cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 by 13 inch pan. In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in buttermilk, bananas and vanilla; blend thoroughly.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir flour, oats, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

*To substitute for buttermilk use 1 ½ tsp. vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to make ½ a cup.
