Double chocolate banana cake

This cake tastes way more "unhealthy" than it could be or is. The amount of banana in it allows you to cut back on the fat you add and you can hide some whole wheat flour in here as well. 
Here's what you need: 
4-5 over ripened bananas 
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups of flour (ap and/or whole wheat)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
I cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 and generously grease a bundt pan. 

Mash banana with baking soda and set aside. 
Cream butter and sugar with a mixer and add eggs. 
Add the flour, salt mixture a little at a time until blended. Add banana, vanilla, and cocoa powder and mix just until blended. 
Stir in chocolate chips and pour into greased bundt pan. 
Bake for 55 minutes. Let cool a bit and invert onto a plate.
 At this point you can sprinkle with confectioners sugar or a decadent chocolate ganache.
