Very good and so easy. I used 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in the cake instead of chocolate squares chopped. I skipped the chocolate frosting because I ran out of time and didnt miss it. There is enough chocolate in the cake and the cake was very moist. Oh and I used about 4 med banana's to get the 1 1/3 C mashed bananas.
