Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Coffee Cake | Recipes

I'll be honest, this week is off to a bit of a rough start.  Apparently we have entered the season of temper tantrums and Levi is bringing them full force! So in the age-old tradition of stress eating I ate a well-rounded breakfast of M&Ms and leftover pizza this morning.  In case maybe your week needs a little pick-me-up too (and if you don't have a 1 kilo bag of M&Ms in your cupboard), here is my favourite recipe for you.  It is seriously the best cake ever...everyone who has ever tasted it raves about it.  I wish I could take credit for thinking this recipe up, but I got it from my mom and its origins prior to that are unknown! The best part about this cake is that it makes a bundt pan AND a loaf pan from one recipe, so if you make it to give to someone, or take it somewhere you still have a little loaf to eat yourself!
