Banana Greek Yogurt Cake


that missing corner was gobbled by my prince who happened to be in his high chair and was in reach of it

I thought this post will never be done. Until this month's Aspiring Baker's theme is Lightened Up Cakes.

So, here comes this aweful tasting cake.
It tasted like bread....dry chewy bland banana tasting bread right after filling.
The next day, it taste more cake like, but still, not delicious at all, just more edible.

My MIL and I tried very hard to eat half of this cake over a few days. Nightmare.


Here's the original recipe from Fresh Ways with Cakes (Healthy Home Cooking)

The Cake90gm soft brown sugar
10ml safflower oil
2 eggs
3 large bananas, peeled and mashed
1 tsp lemon zest
175gm wholemeal flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground all spice
60gm rolled oats
1/2 tsp icing sugar

Yogurt-banana filling
175gm Greek Yogurt
1 banana, peeled and chopped

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 9X7 inch pan.
2. Whisk together brown sugar, oil, and eggs until thick and pale. Stir in the lemon zest and mashed bananas
3. Sift flour  with baking powder and all spice into the banana mixture. Add the bran left in the sieve into the mixture.
4. Add the oats into the batter and fold the batter with spoon.
5. Transfer batter to the lined pan and level surface.
6. Bake it for 30 minutes. Leave to cool for 10 min in tray, then transfer to rack to cool down totally.
7. Split the cake to half  horizontally and then half again vertically.
8. Combine ingredients for filling and fill the cake layers with the filling.
9. Dust top of cake with icing sugar.

  11. Jeannie,
    Since this was the first time I baked from this book, I thought, TRUST it first.
    But then frankly, how come I so stupid follow blindly, with bananas surely must put baking soda, maybe that's why it tasted weird.
    Ah.. no thank you la, I dun event want to try and make it better. Greek yogurt's too expensive to play around.

  12. Hi Wendy,
    Sorry to hear about this cake! Maybe it would be better with plain flour instead of wholewheat flour! At least you have tried it, and can put it out of your mind instead of going back to that page over and over! :)
