RECIPE:Chocolate Chip Banana Bundt Cake....Finally!
1/3 cup shortening
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (I didn't have any so use only if you want!)
In a large bowl, cream the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Add bananas and mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, stirring just until combined. Stir in walnuts. Pour about 1/3 of batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan, sprinkle with chips and repeat ending with batter on the top! You can put as many chips as you want--I used the whole bag! :) Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
