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 cup sugar 

Cream the above, then add: 

 2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla 
3 mashed bananas 

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternating with sour cream.

3 cups flour 
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda 
1 cup sour cream or 1 cup plain yogurt (I used 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 cooking spray and pour in half of batter then top with half of the topping.  Add remaining batter then top with remaining topping. Bake for 350 for 50 minutes. Enjoy!

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