  1. Topping:
    Put the brown sugar, water and butter in an 8 inch pan. Place the cake tin on low flame until the butter melts and the sugar, water and butter is evenly mixed.

    Preheat the oven to 350ºF
  5. Put all the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar in a bowl, lightly mix them until all the ingredients are blended together.
  6. In a second bowl, combine the butter, eggs, pureed bananas, yogurt or sour cream, milk, and vanilla extract, mix thoroughly.
  7. Slowly pour the dry ingredients in to the wet mixture until it’s all combined. Carefully add in the chocolate if doing so.
  8. Pour the mixture carefully over the bananas and lightly spread the batter until it evenly covers the pan.
  9. Put it in the over and let it bake for 40 – 50 mins. You can test it with a toothpick and if it comes out clean then the cake is done.
