Nothing beats fresh baked... anything. And this Banana Cake with chocolate just takes things to the next level. Because, hey, we all need a bit of chocolate in our lives.
3 cups Frankie’s all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
Mix all together in a stand mixer until blended.
To this add:
¾ cup of veg. or canola oil
¾ cup of water
1 tsp. of vanilla
Mix together on low until blended.
Add in 3 mashed bananas. Beat on high for 30 seconds.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop into paper lined muffin pans or bundt pan that has been oiled. Bake at 350F. for approx.: 30 minutes (muffins), 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
