  3. 3 large eggs
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1 teaspoon banana essence
  6. 2-2/3 cups all purpose flour
  7. ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  8. ¼ baking soda
  9. Pinch of salt
  10. 1 cup Greek-style yoghurt

  1. 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  2. ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar

  4. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. Light cream (as needed)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 12-cup Bundt pan and lightly dust with flour. Tap out any excess. Set aside.
  1. Cream butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in light brown sugar until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, vanilla and banana essence, beating well after adding each ingredient.

  3. Pour batter into prepared pan and smoothen top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until tester inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool cake in pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Chill cake, if desired.

  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in yogurt and vanilla until consistency is spreadable. Is mixture is too thick to spread, thin down by adding light cream a few drops at a time, until desired spreading consistency is reached.
  2. Spread frosting on cooled cake and cut before serving.

  2. For a decadent version, drizzle hot fudge sauce over each frosted cake slice on individual dessert plates.
  3. This cake is also good for breakfast with tea or coffee.
