banana chocolate chip cake

I am calling this “ridiculous cake” because it kinda is… I had some ingredients that needed to get used up and voila this magical cake happened.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter (I like Earth Balance for this)

3/4 cup organic sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup flour (regular or gluten free)

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

3 ripe bananas mashed

1/2 cup vegan sour cream (Follow Your Heart)

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°

Grease a bundt pan or loaf pan with coconut oil

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar. Add in the applesauce, vinegar, and vanilla. Mix.

In separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Add the dry into the wet, stirring well.

Stir in the bananas and sour cream.

Fold in the walnuts and or chocolate chips.

Pour into pan and bake 50 minutes. Let cool completely before turning out onto a cake plate.
