Lower Fat Easy Banana Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

A tweaked version of Baby Kato's Kato's Easy Banana Cake My thanks to Baby Kato for the basic recipe that survived all my tweaks & still produced an excellent cake! The texture is light & the cake is very moist. I made 1/2 the recipe last night & ate some warm from the oven.It was marvelous but the true test of a low fat cake is will it "still love me tomorrow" ;-) I had some for breakfast & it was still just as good with none of that strange texture that often accompanies low fat baked goods. You would NEVER guess that it's low fat! Note: Baking time for 1/2 recipe (8X8 pan) was 32 minutes.

This is very good. I reversed the amounts for sugar and Splenda, using only 1/4 cup sugar to 1/2 cup Splenda, and the results were fine. I did not have butter flavor extract, so used vanilla. I served this with a dollop of non-fat vanilla yogurt. Thanks for posting this!
