Ohhhh, bananas, they are so good. Especially when they are converted into cake. Moist, scrumptious, healthy, chocolate-chippy cake.

So gooooooood. Is your mouth watering yet?

Now, you might be asking: Is this the same thing as banana bread? My answer: No. It is a cake. A real cake. A cake that could be used for a birthday party and there would be a lot of happy people. Honestly, nothing beats banana cake.

I chose to serve this cake with the Chocolate Greek Yogurt Glaze that I used on my Avocado Chocolate Cake, mostly because my fiancé loves chocolate and it complements the banana flavor. However, I would be perfectly content with this cake without the chocolate glaze. It is sweet and soft and perfectly banana-y.

It is also, as is common with my desserts, great for those health-conscious dessert-lovers out there. It has no fat other than chocolate chips and it cuts way back on the sugar as compared to other cakes. Not to mention it has the benefit of containing real live fruit which not only improves the flavor but helps out the body too.
