The addition of oatmeal to this banana cake makes it a very hearty yet moist cake. It's great for breakfast with a cup of coffee.
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 medium bananas)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 TBS water (or more to reach desired consistency)
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan. In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter and eggs; mix well. Stir in buttermilk, bananas and vanilla; blend thoroughly.
In another bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; mix well. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Spread batter in prepared pan and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
While cake is still warm, combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over cake.
