  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 package plain German chocolate cake mix psh, don't give me grief about using a cake mix
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips


  • ½ cup sugar
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 2/3 cup cinnamon chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Heat oven to 350. Peel bananas and place them in a large mixingbowl. With the electric mixer on low speed, blend them until mashed. Add the cake mix, buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Blend on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape the bowl with a spatula and beat 2 more minutes on medium speed. Fold in the cinnamon chips, making sure theyare well-distributed. Bake until cake springs back when pressed with finger (38-40 minutes). Let cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, place sugar, butter and milk for glaze in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until it boils. Still stirring, let it boil for 1 minute and remove pan from heat. Stir in cocoa powder, cinnamon chips and vanilla until the cinnamon chips are melted and the glaze is smooth. Stir and let cool for a few minutes until it thickens a little. When cake is cool, drizzle over the top. Save extra glaze in fridge and eat like fudge.
  3. Gorge yourself and your friends with cake. Bask in the mighty praise you are sure to receive.
