Banana Yoghurt Loaf Cake

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A delicious banana yoghurt loaf cake recipe, which comes courtesy of a very special and long serving supporter of The Organised Housewife.

This recipe comes courtesy of Les, an avid follower of The Organised Housewife for many years now. This Banana Yoghurt Loaf Cake creation of his is so yummy, even his local cafe sold it to it’s patrons! Les puts the freshness of the cake down to the inclusion of greek yoghurt instead of oil or butter.

Overripe bananas perfect for cake recipe

In haste I made this loaf in a square cake tin, but the recipe does suggest a loaf tin. I do feel after tasting the texture of the cake that it would be better suited as a loaf.

Overripe bananas are best for this recipe, but if you don’t have any, Les has a fabulous tip: “Did you know if you can’t buy rotten bananas you can bake them in the oven until the skin turns black – they’ll be perfect”.

If you prefer cakes without a lot of sugar, you can reduce the amount in this cake. Les cut the sugar down to 1/2 a cup in his cake, and was very happy with the result.

Les is regularly sharing his updates with us, and the whole team absolutely adore hearing from him! We are very sad to have missed him on his recent visit to QLD.
