Banana Yoghurt Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

serves 6-8

2 ripe bananas mashed
1 x 200g low fat vanilla yoghurt

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 eggs separated (room temperature)
1 tablespoon castor sugar

Icing
3 tablespoons light cream cheese
2 tablespoons icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

1. Preheat oven to 180*.

2. Combine together in a bowl the banana, yoghurt, flours, spice, baking powder, vanilla and egg yolks.

3. In a separated bowl beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Gradually add the castor sugar into the whites and beat until combined.

4. Gently fold the egg whites into the banana mix.

5. Spray a cake tin with cooking spray and pour the mixture into the tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack, cool and spread with icing.

This cake is best stored in the fridge until required

*instead of using the 2 SR flours you can just use 1 1/2 cups Self Raising white flour.

Hey Lizzie to make the bear I just doubled the recipe so it served 12-16 and added 3-4 tablespoons of cocoa to the icing mix (you may need to add a bit more cream cheese) this adds around 6 calories per serve. The picture doesn't quite show up that he has 2 wagon wheels for ears!!
