CINNAMON BANANA CAKE

~ THE idea ROOM

CAKE
1 c. butter  
1 c. sugar
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
dash of salt
3 c. flour
2 c. sour cream or vanilla yogurt

FILLING
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 T. cinnamon
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 c. chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 pan. 

Mix the butter, sugar, bananas, eggs, and vanilla together.  Add remaining cake ingredients and mix well.  In a separate bowl, combine filling ingredients. 

Layer the batter and filling twice in prepared pan.  Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes: I prefer to make this with or without chocolate chips, but always without nuts.  It tastes like banana bread, with the added bonus of cinnamon.
