Ingredients

Filling and icing:

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup soft brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

 

Cake:

  • 115g butter, softened
  • 1 scant cup caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 125g Meadow Fresh Sour cream
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°c. Grease a 20cm cake tin and line with baking paper. Mix the filling ingredients together and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and beat well. Stir in the sour cream, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Fold into the creamed mixture. Spoon half the cake mixture into the tin and spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle half the filling mixture over the top. Spread remaining cake mixture over and finish with remaining filling mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Leave in the cake tin for 20 minutes before moving on to a wire rack.
