If you have leftover bananas and are tired of banana bread, make this snack cake. This cake is dense and moist and has a lovely sweet banana flavor. Use overripe bananas for the best flavor. This makes a great lunchbox treat, too.

2 cups ap flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
8 Tbs butter softened
2 large room temperature eggs
1 1/2 cups of very ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F
Grease an 8x8 square cake pan
Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Beat the sugar and butter together in a large bowl or mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs one at a time until incorporated.
Scrape down bowl.
Beat in the bananas, milk and vanilla.
Mix in flour mixture until just combined.
Bake for 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick comes out with few crumbs.
Cool on wire rack.
