Chocolate Banana Marble Cake

This recipe is a keeper!  I made it with my Foods 9 classes.  You could easily double it into a bigger pan and not have to deal with half an egg and half a banana - recipe is following the photos.  It was really fun for the students as the cakes all turn out differently due to the swirling....they said it was edible art class!  The cake turns out VERY moist.  The flavor is great - banana and chocolate!  Some said that they would add in chocolate chips or peanut butter chips at home.  For me, I can see myself making this at home as a treat, and it will DEFINITELY be a keeper in my Foods 9 program.   I will just have to watch a few groups....we had a couple Chocolate Banana marbling as the students added the cocoa to the dry ingredients and not the 1/3 batter at the end...oops!  It is all part of the learning
