Low Fat Banana Wacky Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Run26.2

Had an old banana laying around, looked up a wacky cake recipe and edited it to the types of food I usually eat. (aka: low fat/healthier) It is pretty gooey, but I may not have cooked it long enough, also a little chewy because of the oatmeal.

This is similar to what we have made for years, called "Crazy Cake", with the addition of oatmeal and banana, which are nice additions! This had a great flavor and was quite moist for being so low in fat. As I was reading the recipe i noticed there was no leavening agent included, so I dug out my Crazy Cake recipe saw that it used baking soda. I added 1 teaspoon of baking soda. I also increased the vinegar to 2 teaspoons.
