Breakfast-Worthy Banana Cake

I totally need a bundt pan – okay, okay… want. I totally want a bundt pan. I have been using my Angel Food pan for all bundt recipes so I don’t need an actual bundt pan but it sure would be nice.

Anyway… Mom was feeling a bit down. My solution? Bake her something yummy. I tried to figure out what and with 3 ripe bananas on my counter, I decided using those would be ideal. Last time I sent over a lemon loaf so I didn’t want to do another loaf recipe so that nixed the banana bread. Instead, I decided to to make a cake. Thumbing through my recipes I came across one that I made my own. It’s an interesting cake – It is dense, yet fluffy; it is light yet filling. Also, not too sweet! The almonds and greek yogurt add extra protein to it so really is a great breakfast cake!
