Ellen’s Challenge to Great Aunt Selma’s Banana Cake

g’morning-  i’d like to challenge Great Aunt Selma with  my MOTHER’S CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA CAKE.  here’s my recipe, similar,  just a little different. (my secret is mixing the sour crm and bicarbonate (baking soda) together so they rise and that makes a fluffy, moist cake)

I received this after I published my Great Aunt’s recipe, I love that Ellen sent this to me and welcome any and all feedback, especially when you believe it to be so very good like Ellen obviously does! I am going to try this recipe as soon as I have some more rotten bananas to use. It certainly sounds great! Thanks so much Ellen for all your input and support!

preheat oven to 375

1 stick butter

2 cups all-purpose flour sifted

1/2 cup crisco oil

1 1/4 cup sugar

4 tbsp sour crm

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 teasp salt

2 eggs

2 overripe bananas- mashed well

cup mini choc chips (if you flour chips lightly they will not sink to bottom)

1.  mix sour crm and baking soda together in a small bowl and set aside

2.  crm butter and sugar

3.  add sour crm mixture and rest of ingredients

4.  pour into buttered loaf pan

5.  bake 375 for 15 minutes

6.  REDUCE heat to 350 and bake for 50- 60  minutes (testing, last 10 minutes)

kisses, El
