When I mentioned the recipe contest to my husband, he immediately suggested I enter this extra special cake. Packed with ripe bananas and white chocolate in the batter, it tastes wonderful even without the frosting.
When Jacqueline Kudron of Dracut, Massachusetts asked the Light & Tasty team to revamp her banana cake, we couldn't wait to give it a try. Luckily, this version is 171 calories lighter than Jacqueline's original and has 63% less fat. Best of all, the taste and moist texture of her specialty remains.
Banana cake is a typical standby for many home bakers, but Jacqueline Kudron jazzes up her version with crushed pineapple and maraschino cherries. "Is there any way to lighten it up without losing the great taste and moist texture?" she asks from Dracut, Massachusetts. See the recipe for Makeover Old-Fashioned Banana Cake to find out how we answered Jacqueline's question.
