I plan to try this and thanks for the video. I've made banana choc. chip cake before using a box mix and mashed bananas with a cream cheese frosting and it's very good. However, most, not all, but most of the time the choc. chips fall to the bottom when baked. Not sure why sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. Any thoughts on that or how to keep them in the middle of the cake and not at the bottom
