Low Fat Banana Cake

Recipe by s. anne

This recipe has been in my family (in full-fat version) for years, and one day I decided to try it with alternate low-fat ingredients, and it tasted just as good! Great low-fat, low-calorie, guilt free treat. Frosting is optional.

Great recipe! I used fat free Greek yogurt and skipped the salt and made it in a bundt. Also added 3/4 cup of regular sugar and made a banana cream cheese icing. THanks for the keeper!
