Cbocolate Bottom Banana Cake

I tried this recipe because I love chocolate and I love banana. Well, when you put them together, you have just made heaven! All you chocolate and banana lovers ENJOY!

Chocolate Bottom Banana Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 3 - 4 bananas)
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 cup chocolate chips

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and bananas mixing thoroughly. ( I used a mixer.)
Add the flour, soda, baking powder and salt and mix well.

Put half the batter in a small bowl. Add cocoa to that half. Spread that portion in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Spoon remaining batter (one without cocoa) on top. Swirl gently with a butter knife and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Test with a toothpick to make sure batter is done. Cool before cutting--if you can wait that long :-)
