bananas, over-ripe and mashed
Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer; add to the molasses and mix until combined.
Add the eggs, then mix in the bananas; mix in the flour, baking soda, salt and extract until smooth, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Place the batter in a buttered and floured 9-inch springform mold; bake for about 1 hour.
Let the cake cool on a rack, cut it in half to form 2 layers, frost with your favorite chocolate frosting and serve.
