I don’t know about you, but I love brunch. It’s the best meal ever. Know why? Because you can have breakfast, or you could opt for lunch….ORRRR you could have something sweet and dessert-like! The options are endless! I think dessert for breakfast is a great idea. Get all those calories in early so you have the rest of the day to work them off! It’s the perfect plan. I’m starting out Brunch Week with a sweet treat — banana bundt cake. I loaded my cake with mini chocolate chips and TONS of cinnamon. You know how much I like my cinnamon! Serve this cake with a side of fruit and a steaming hot cup of coffee and you have one great brunch. Or better yet, try out one of the other Brunch Week recipes listed below!
Glazed Banana Bundt Cake
For the cake:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large very ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract 3/4 cup egg whites (equivalent of 4 large eggs)
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 and coat your Bundt pan with flour.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the yogurt, sugar and banana. Add the vanilla and egg whites. It will appear runny, but this is okay. Stir in the flour mix a little at a time until it is fully incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula (I used my brand new William Sonoma spoonula!) Pour the batter in the Bundt pan and spread evenly, smoothing out the top. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
