Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugar. Mix until light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, blending well after each. Add vanilla, Choco, buttermilk, and bananas. Mix thoroughly for 1 minute. Gradually add the dry ingredients. After everything is combined, beat on a medium speed for 2 minutes.
