Chunky Banana Cake (Simple Baking)

Banana cakes comes in different ways. This is a bit uncommon but very nice recipe. Really simple and easy to make too. Only thing is better using medium ripe bananas than using the over ripe to keep the beautiful chunks in it. Its so nice and beautiful when you cut it.  You can freeze this cake up to 3 months with out a problem. When you freeze make sure to wrap them individually than wrapping the whole lot at once. That way you can thaw the amount as you go. Remember once thaw you cant freeze back.

Sour cream is not available in some countries. You can always use curd, greek style yoghurt, or natural yoghurt for this recipe with out a problem. I have done it using all of them and its always a success.
