Banana Smoothie Cake

  • 2 ⅔ cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ sticks butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 medium mashed very ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Prepare 9x13 baking pan by spraying it with baking or cooking spray; set aside.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light in color and fluffy. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the mashed bananas, plain yogurt, and vanilla extract.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just blended. Once everything is blended well, pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out with a spatula.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting or sprinkling with powdered sugar. I frosted mine with a simple vanilla frosting.
