Edit – I split this post from another one I wrote a number of months ago so the recipe was easier to find. My brother in law and his wife are happily married over a year now. 🙂
A few weeks ago we had this rehearsal dinner for my brother in law and his fiance (who are now married!) and my mom in law made this KILLER YUMMY cake that she referred to as UBC cake which everyone in the Arbo clan apparently knew about except me and I feel that my life has been cheated. This cake makes me cry its so yummy. Um, hello, Awesome, won’t you stay a while?
UBC Ponderosa Cake
This is a delicious moist, chocolate chip banana cake.
Makes one 8″ square cake. Double the recipe for a larger cake (9″x13″).
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar (recipe calls for 1 cup)
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup mashed bananas (approx. 2 bananas)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Cream butter and granulated sugar. Add egg, then vanilla and bananas. Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add to banana mixture alternately with sour cream. Pour half of batter into greased 8″ square pan. Mix cinnamon and brown sugar together. Sprinkle half on top of batter, then half of chocolate chips. Repeat layers. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until cake tester in middle comes out clean.
