Eggless Banana-Choco chip Squares

There was a time when over ripe bananas were used only to make Buns and then these muffins but these days when bananas get over ripe,I am lost for choice.There are so many yummy recipes using bananas and I feel I should try them all.Since it is Navrathri,I wanted to try out an eggless recipe from my over crowded bookmarked folder.Aparna's Eggless Banana Choco chip squares seemed like the perfect choice.
The recipe is a breeze to make and the chocolate chips in every bite make it a great treat.

Eggless Banana Choco Chip Squares


Butter - 75 gms,softened at room temperature
Brown sugar - 3/4 cup,firmly packed
Ripe Banana - 1 large,pureed/mashed
Milk - 3-4 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Cardamom pod - 1(optional)
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1/3 cup


Preheat oven to 180C.Grease/line a 7' square cake tin.
Puree the banana with milk,cardamom and vanilla extract till smooth.
Sift together flour and baking powder and keep aside.
Beat together sugar and butter till fluffy and creamy.Mix in the banana puree and beat till smooth.
Mix in the sifted flour and beat again on moderate speed till you get a smooth batter.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scrape the batter into the prepared tin,scatter more chocolate chips if you like 
and bake for 30-35 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for about 5 minutes and then invert into a wire rack for further cooling.
Cut into squares and serve.
The recipe makes 9 big or 16 small squares.
