TMTT--Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake

I love looking at the recipes from TMTT, there's a great group of bloggers there that share some yummy recipes!  Check out Lisa's Strawberry Cupcakes, I'm drooling. 

The second recipe I tried this weekend was Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake (from Two Peas and Their Pod). We always have bananas around (Small Fish loves them) and this is delicious! Keep an eye out for cinnamon chips (usually located right by the chocolate chips) at your local store.

Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake
from Two Peas and Their Pod

3 very ripe bananas
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cinnamon chips

For topping:
3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas well with a fork or potato masher. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Stir in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and sugar.

Add ¾ cup of the cinnamon chips, and stir briefly. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter in the pan, and top with the remaining ¼ cup chips.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Hi Lisa! They look just like chocolate chips and are made by Hershey. They are really easy to find around here, probably because we are 20 minutes away from Hershey, PA. :-)
