This little cake isn’t adorned in frosting, doesn’t have a glaze and isn’t sprinkled with powdered sugar. Nothing to make it look stunning, but you’ll forget about fancying it all up after you taste it! To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
This is the best chocolate banana cake I’ve ever made! Call me crazy but the browned butter, chocolate chips and banana in this cake reminded me of a cookie. Yes a cookie! I ate a slice while it was warm, then I snuck another slice cause the first was so good! Moist – that’s the first thing you notice. There’s a slight crisp on the top of the cake-not much, just slight-then you hit that moist soft cake filled with bananas, chocolate chips and browned butter and your mouth is doing the dance of joy!
Oh yes, I’ll be making this again…this is cake I’ll be thinking about as I watch those bananas get ripe on the counter!

Browned Butter Chocolate Banana Cake
1/2 lb. (1 cup) unsalted butter; more for the pan
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup finely mashed ripe bananas (2 medium bananas)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. table salt
7-1/2 oz. (1 2/3 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour; more for the pan
1-1/4 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 10-cup decorative tube or bundt pan. Tap out any excess flour.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the butter is melted, cook it slowly, letting it bubble, until it smells nutty or like butterscotch and turns a deep golden hue, 5 to 10 minutes. If the butter splatters, reduce the heat to low. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the browned butter through a fine sieve into a medium bowl and discard the bits in the sieve. Let the butter cool until it’s very warm rather than boiling hot, 5 to 10 min.
Using a whisk, stir the sugar and eggs into the butter. (Since the butter is quite warm, you can use cold eggs for this.) Whisk until the mixture is smooth (the sugar may still be somewhat grainy), 30 to 60 seconds. Whisk in the mashed bananas, vanilla, and salt. Sift the flour and baking soda directly onto the batter. Pour the chocolate chips over the flour. Using a rubber spatula, stir just until the batter is uniformly combined. Don’t overmix.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly with the rubber spatula. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out with only moist crumbs clinging to it, 42 to 45 min. Set the pan on a rack to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the cake onto the rack and remove the pan. Let cool until just warm and then serve immediately or wrap well in plastic and store at room temperature for up to five days.

Wow, you all are quite the culinary powerhouse! Everything sounds wonderful.
Gotta say I’m partial to browned butter, it’s the bomb in desserts.
Oh, and I forgot to reply to something you commented to on my blog a little while ago… regarding celebrity gossip blogs. I’ve been visiting perezhilton.com and thesuperficial.com. Then I just found something on E!online about “true, false, and Ted” (or something like that). You have to put up with their personal agendas and that gets a little annoying sometimes, but it’s still entertaining.
Banana breads and cakes are always good! I like the use of the brown butter in this one.
The chicken sounds nice and quick and tasty!
