Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
A wonderful lower-fat cake/muffin recipe that's easy to make as everything is mixed by hand --- this recipe was tested and developed using low-fat yogurt although I would think that low-fat sour cream may be substituted with good results --- visit www.kittencalskitchen.com for more low-fat recipes!
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup sugar (or to taste)

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup plain fat-free yogurt (can use low-fat yogurt)
- 3⁄4 cup mashed ripe banana
