    2      cups          sifted cake flour
    2      tablespoons   unsweetened cocoa powder, (not Dutch process)
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      3/4  cup           mashed very ripe banana, (2 small)
      3/4  cup           buttermilk
      2/3  cup           packed light or dark brown sugar
      1/4  cup           dark corn syrup
    3      tablespoons   canola oil
    1      tablespoon    pure vanilla extract
      1/3  cup           chocolate chips (I used miniature)

 OVEN: 400
 Lightly oil an 8-by-12-inch or 7-by-11-inch baking pan or coat it with
 nonstick cooking spray.
 In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In another
 bowl, whisk mashed banana, buttermilk, brown sugar, corn syrup, oil and
 vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the
 banana mixture; mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula just until the
 dry ingredients are moistened.
 Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan, smoothing the top.
 Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over the top. Bake for about 20
 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Let
 cool in the pan, dust with confectioner’s sugar and cut into squares.
