Banana Chip Cake

This is my version of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream (my favorite!) in a cake. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool. —Barbara Pryor, Milford, Massachusetts

    This recipe was a waste of time and ingredients. I followed the recipe and even baked it 10 minutes longer when the toothpick test proved it was still wet in the middle. The end result was a soggy mess that wold not come out of the pan. 0 stars from me.

    I will not bake this again. When I look for a recipe to bake from scratch, I do not expect to be told to use a cake mix, especially after cake mixes were recalled for salmonella poisoning.
