Old Fashioned Banana Cake

This is one cake I have been saving to do for some time now...and ya, at last I tried it out and regretted waiting for so long. It is so soft and yummy, practically melts in the mouth. You just got to try this out to see. It is so easy to put together and the recipe's a keeper.

You need :

3 large ripe bananas, mashed
170 gm butter
160 gm castor sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp yogurt
227 gm cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Method :

Preheat oven to 170C. Grease and line a 8x8 inch square pan.

Beat butter and sugar till fluffy. Add one egg at a time and beat well between additions. Add in vanilla and yougurt. Beat.
In a bowl, combine flour, soda and baking powder.
Add in mashed bananas and flour mixture into the mixer and beat in slow speed.
Once combined, pour into prepare pan and bake for about 40-50 mins (depending on your oven). Check occasionally after 35 minutes to avoid over baking.
