bananas for chocolate chip banana cake
I have heard of people freezing their bananas to use for a chocolate chip banana cake. I had some brown bananas that I put in the freezer 2 days ago and I am not sure if that was the right thing to do. As I was searching recipes it said to use ripe bananas. My bananas are past ripe, they are definitely brown. Can I us them? If so, do you have a good recipe for a chocolate chip banana cake? I was hoping to use a bunt pan, but many recipes call for a loaf pan.
Yes, they will be fine- brown is ripe in cake making jargon. To make a loaf recipe in a large bundt pan, you simply double the recipe. You don't change the cooking time or temp; the hole in the middle of the bundt pan acts as a heat channel, keeping the cooking time about the same as a loaf pan.
