Easy Banana Chocolate Chip Cake made Three Ways

Banana Chocolate Chip cake is our family’s go-to dessert. If there’s something to celebrate it’ll likely make it to the table. It’s delicious, moist, and easy enough to make with little helper-hands.

I found the recipe through WeightWatchers.com years and years ago. What follows is my take on the original recipe with additional instructions to bake as a bundt cake, tray of cupcakes, or set of mini loafs (which work fabulous as gifts).

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake | Bundt, Cupcakes, and Mini Loaves

What you need

Cooking Spray
Flour for dusting pan
18.5 oz unprepared yellow cake mix
1 package 3.4 oz instant banana cream dry pudding mix
8 oz fat free egg substitute
8 oz fat free sour cream
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
16 ounce package of mini chocolate chips
2 ripe bananas

1 can of whipped cream cheese frosting
1 tube of decorating frosting/icing

How to Make the Bundt

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Coat a 12-cup bundt pan with cooking spray, dust the inside of the pan with flour and set aside.
  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, egg substitute, sour cream, water, oil and vanilla in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork.  Fold in bananas and chocolate chips.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and level the surface.
  5. Bake until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.  Allow to cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes, invert cake onto rack and cool completely.
  6. Frost with cream cheese frosting and decorate with icing as desired.

Additional Instructions for Cupcakes and Mini-Loaves

  • For cupcakes, use cupcake liners and bake for 22-25 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes. Frost as desired.
  • For mini-loaves, prep pans as bundt pan. Bake for 33-35 minutes. To give as a gift, skip the frosting, wrap loaf in tin foil and tie a bow with colored ribbon.
