Nutella Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

How Do You Ripen Bananas Really Fast? If you don’t have time to wait for your bananas to ripen, don’t panic! Just cut them into slices and roast them on a baking sheet at 400°F for about 15 minutes, or until the peels turn black.

Prep Your Materials

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Get out 3 round 9-inch cake pans and coat them in a thin layer of cooking spray.

Sift the Dry Ingredients

Use a sieve to sift together the flour, baking soda and salt before setting the bowl to the side. Mash your bananas in a separate bowl and set this aside too.

Cream the Butter and Sugar

Use a stand mixer or a hand mixer and a large bowl to cream the butter, sugar, and light brown sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Add Your Wet Ingredients

Crack in the eggs and add the mashed bananas, vanilla, and Greek yogurt or sour cream. Blend everything until the mixture takes on a smooth consistency.


Beat the dry ingredients slowly into the wet ingredients and stop as soon as it’s all combined. Stir the chocolate chips into the batter with a wooden spoon.


Separate the batter evenly into the pans. Bake them for 45-60 minutes, or until you can stick a toothpick into the center and watch it come out clean.

Let Cool

Let the cakes cool right in the pans for 10-15 minutes. Move them carefully onto a wire rack and let them cool completely.


Make icing and prepare to assemble cakes. Level the layers, spread on the nutella and icing. When you place the final cake layer on top, cover the whole cake with what’s left of the frosting.
