banana butterscotch cake

I saw this cake on one of my favorite blogs, Cooking This and That. I had just the right amount of very ripe bananas, butterscotch chips, and a craving for something a little bit sweet, so I had to make this! There’s no added fat, besides what’s in the butterscotch chips, so I was a little skeptical…..but it was totally delicious!  Kind of a cross between banana bread and cake.  Mmmm….
3 very ripe bananas
2 large eggs1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup butterscotch chips
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour an 8×8 baking dish.
2. In a mixing bowl, mash the 3 bananas. (I did it with a potato masher.) Add the eggs and vanilla and mix together. Fold in sugar gently, until combined.
3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Gradually add to the banana mixture and stir until well combined. Fold in butterscotch chips. Pour into prepared pan.
4. In a small bowl, mix together the last bit of sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the batter.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a tester comes out clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes until serving!
