“A tweaked version of Baby Kato's Kato's Easy Banana Cake My thanks to Baby Kato for the basic recipe that survived all my tweaks & still produced an excellent cake! The texture is light & the cake is very moist. I made 1/2 the recipe last night & ate some warm from the oven.It was marvelous but the true test of a low fat cake is will it "still love me tomorrow" ;-) I had some for breakfast & it was still just as good with none of that strange texture that often accompanies low fat baked goods. You would NEVER guess that it's low fat! Note: Baking time for 1/2 recipe (8X8 pan) was 32 minutes.”
