“This banana cake is very light, fluffy and has a great tang to the icing. It's lower in calories and nice enough for company or simply breakfast. I use less sugar than is typical, if you prefer a noticeably sweet cake, add 1 full cup. I also find the cake takes a little more than one smashed banana, and you can use the rest of the second for the frosting”
