Chocolate Chip Banana Cake 1

 Once upon a time there was a blogger named Katie.  She was a caterer who posted the most delectable recipes and gorgeous photos to go with it.  Then one day, Katie and her blog Good Things Catered, disappeared.  This is one of the great mysteries in the blogging community.  What happened to Katie?  Why did she delete her blog without any notice?

Like many of her fans, I was dismayed when she left.  The good news is her recipes are still around the blogosphere.  Like this Chocolate Chip Banana Cake.  I wished that I could have gotten a picture of the entire cake but as you can see my husband took a few slices.
I named this Chocolate Chip Banana Cake 1 because there are other recipes that Katie had up her sleeve.  Some using instant vanilla pudding mix and others with shortening in it.  I chose this one because I had all the ingredients on hand.  Enjoy!
