A note on chocolate cake from Beth: “I usually don’t care for chocolate cake (though I love chocolate itself), but this one I love!  It’s pretty good with caramel sauce and/or chocolate raspberry sauce.”

For those unable to eat chocolate and to ensure the large cake baked, I reserved some plain banana batter for a mini bundt cake.  I added chopped butterscotch chips and topped it with white chocolate glaze:
White Chocolate Glaze1/4 cup white chocolate chips2 tsp milk
Combine ingredients and melt in microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring well.  
(It should be finished by the second heating.  Be careful, white chocolate burns easily.  Drizzle on the cake immediately, as it will harden quickly.)

Chocolate Chip Nutella Swirl Banana Bundt Cake with Nutella Glaze
I had lots of ripe bananas and ohh my this cake was good.  I added cocoa powder to the nutella portion of the batter, and didn’t have quite enough for the glaze, so I instead used this glaze recipe (with a bit of nutella in it!)
