Pum’s favourite recipes…Yummy Yoghurt Banana Cake

I love banana bread…how easy and quick it is to make, the smell that fills the kitchen while it’s baking and most of all the subtly sweet moreish taste.

I’ve tried a few different recipes for banana bread and when making it in a loaf tin I stick with the classic recipe with no additions to produce a lovely banana bread.  However if I want something more cake-like I’ll use my yoghurt banana cake recipe to give a really moist, chewy, cakey finish.




Pum’s Yummy Yoghurt Banana Cake

  1. 3 ripe bananas
  2. 1 1/2 cups flour
  3. 2 tsp. baking powder
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
  6. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  7. 2 tsp. ground ginger
  8. coconut oil for baking dish


What Pum did
  1. Whisked the egg in a mixing bowl and added mashed bananas, greek yoghurt, brown sugar and ground ginger.
  2. Mixed in the flour and baking powder (just until combined, don’t over-mix!).
  3. Greased a baking dish/cake tin with coconut oil and added the mixture.
  4. Baked in oven for 20-30 mins until cooked evenly (keep an eye on the top becoming firm and check a tooth pick comes out clean from the middle).
  5. Leave to cool before serving plain (with a nice cup of tea) or with a thin spread of peanut butter and drizzle of honey, as pictured.



I like to add just a sprinkling of brown sugar before going into the oven, cheeky addition but makes for a lovely topping!




Mmmmm perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon!
