Why I Love This Recipe

from Cooking Light


Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana - about 3 bananas (I only had 2 so that's what I used)
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt (I substituted reduced-fat sour cream because that's what I had)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Cooking spray


Directions

Preheat oven to 350.


Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.


Place sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended.


Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist.


Spoon batter into an 8.5 x 4.5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.


Bake at 350 for 1 hour (mine took 65 minutes) or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.


Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
