Yield: 12-15 pieces

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 45-50 minutes


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs, room temperature

  • 2 ½ cups mashed bananas (about 5 bananas)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup sour cream or greek yogurt

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat to 350°F and grease and line a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream the butter, granulated sugar, banana and vanilla extract. Then add your eggs to the mix one at a time, mixing until combined.

  3. Add the sour cream or greek yogurt int he mix and combine into the mixture. Then, add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and fold in only until no streaks of flour remain. Do the same with 1 cup of the chocolate chips, saving the rest for the top. Pour into the baking dish.

  4. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the top of the batter, as well as the remaining chocolate chips. If you want more flavours throughout the cake, sprinkle half the brown sugar and cinnamon over half the batter, then top with the remaining batter and brown sugar, cinnamon, and chocolate chips.

  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and on a baking rack to cool completely. Serve the cake about an hour after or store in the refrigerate for up to a week.
