Flo's Cakes - Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Another yummy recipe from Flo!

Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake
Shared by Florence Fox
 This is one of the first coffee cakes I ever baked. I got the recipe from my mom, and it stays in my file as a tried and true keeper.

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 ½ cups mashed bananas

1 cup sour cream

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp salt

3 cups flour


½ cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 ½ cups mini chocolate chips

Pour half of batter into 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with half of filling. Pour remaining batter on top of filling, then remaining filling. Bake at 350˚ for 50-60 minutes.

Note: Because I prefer shallower cake and shorter baking time, I often divide the batter between two 9-inch square pans, or divide the recipe in half and bake in an 8x11 pan.


Florence lives in the northwoods of Michigan with her husband and three preschoolers. Her hobbies are writing and baking coffee cakes. A few  months ago she published a book titled My First Deer Hunt. This is a children’s story about the time her husband took their oldest son (then four-years-old) to the woods for his first hunting trip. The story is illustrated with real photos, and professionally designed. Told from a child’s viewpoint, this account will entertain and educate young children who love wildlife. If you would like to order a copy, email Flo at The cost for one book is $8.99 plus $2 shipping and handling.
