Speckled with chocolate morsels, the real trick to this cake was the sour cream. A little sour cream goes a long way when it comes to baking certain cakes I find, and this banana cake is a shining example. It held together nicely. It was moist with just the right amount of density. It didn't even have a strong banana flavor. The spices blended perfectly with the batter.
