Crater Cake

I had some very ripe bananas as I often do. I typically make banana bread, banana chocolate chip muffins, banana cake or put them in smoothies. I was looking through my recipes and found this recipe for Crater Cake. I didn't think I knew who gave me this recipe but a friend informed me that another friend Cindy gave it to us. Cindy was a hoot. She lived in Omaha but has since moved to Wisconsin. My family loved this cake! I couldn't get them to stop eating it. Actually, I couldn't stop eating it either. I think it would be great for dessert or for brunch or breakfast as a coffee cake.



Crater Cake

1 cup butter
1 cups sugar
Cream the above, then add:

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 mashed bananas

In separate bowl, mix:

3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda

1 cup sour cream or 1 cup plain yogurt (I used sour cream)
Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternating with sour cream.

Mix topping in separate bowl:
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Spray a 9 x 13 with Pam and pour in half of batter then top with half of the topping and add remaining batter. Top with remaining topping. Bake for 350 for 50 minutes.

* I entered these ingredients into the Recipe Builder at www.weightwatchers.com and using greek yogurt (which turned out great) and having 20 servings per 9 x 13 - each piece would be 10 points plus
