Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The key to good banana bread is lots of overripe bananas and sour cream. You get a super banana-ey cake that is very moist. You also need key baking ingredients like flour, sugar and butter, but everything together makes for a delicious result.

I made this cake about 2 weeks ago, then made it again yesterday because it was so good.Β The recipe came from my aunt, not sure where she got it from. I’m happy to share it with all of you though πŸ™‚
