Banana Bundt Bread

I was looking for something fun to do with ripe bananas, and this recipe was a winner. Nathanael isn't a big banana fan, but he found this recipe "a very acceptable use of bananas."

1 cube butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar, plus 2 T sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

  1. Grease a bundt pan, and coat sides (like you would flour a pan) with sugar.
  2. Cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in banana and sour cream.
  3. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to banana mixture.
  4. Spoon half of batter into the bundt pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and remaining 2T sugar. Add other half of batter.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Test with a toothpick for doneness, keeping in mind the gooey chocolate layer.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a plate.
