Servings   12

For Cake-
1-3/4 C. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 C. butter, softened
1 C. sugar
1 t. pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1/4 C., 1 T. buttermilk
1 heaping C. semisweet chocolate chips
For Frosting- 1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 C. powdered sugar
1 pint strawberries, halved, for garnish

To prepare cake- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 (9-inch) cake pans. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
Into a clean, large bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed. Beat in vanilla extract, scraping the bowl as necessary with a rubber spatula. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, mixing until completely incorporated. On low speed, add the sifted dry ingredients in two additions alternately with the buttermilk. Beat for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips until evenly dispersed throughout batter. Divide batter evenly between 2 prepared pans. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto wire rack. Cakes should cool completely for about 2 hours before frosting.
To prepare frosting- While cakes are cooling, in a large, clean mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and lemon juice using an electric mixer on medium speed. Slowly add powdered sugar, until frosting is a spreadable consistency. If frosting becomes too thick, add water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
To assemble cake- Place 1 cake layer on serving platter and spread 1/2 of prepared frosting over all. Top with second cake round and spread remaining frosting over all. If desired, garnish with strawberries. Cover with cake dome and cool in refrigerator. Allow cake to come to room temperature before serving.
