Orange, Banana & Yoghurt Cake

This is a really delicious cake for breakfast, not too sweet, very moist because of the yoghurt. I love that is it quick to prepare and cook.

1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 banana
1 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup yoghurt
Zest of one orange
1/3 cup orange juice

Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a cake pan (I used a bundt loaf pan)

Mix the butter and sugar, incorporate mashed banana. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and and baking soda. In a third bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Slowly add the flour mixture into the banana base, alternating with orange-yoghurt.

Cook for about 35 minutes. Cooking times depend on the pan you use, check for doneness with a toothpick - it should come out crumb free.

Can we talk about how yummy this was? Please? Oh my gosh. I made two. Last night. At 10 o clock. After an eight hour day, an hour of research and an ultimate frisbee game. One for me and one for a friend on the mend. Yep. Yum, yum.

Kaitlin, I love how you are my test kitchen!!!!

There is also a sigh of relief when you say that it turns out yummy - I rarely measure...

You are a baking-machine.
