Prune And Banana Yogurt Cake

Muggy morning again... Today we broke a record of 24-day sweltering nights since 1876!!!

This is my favorite high-fiber cake using prune and banana ;) Prune prevents an iron deficiency. Yogurt is good for your intestines.

Happy cake for women ;)

  1. Ochi,

    Can I replace banana with the others??

    I love your recipes but unluckily I don't have oven to do so..

  2. Oh that sounds delicious! Lovely photo, too. :D

  3. Hi Ochi,

    You know I love banana bread but have had to stay away from it due to the bananas. They would just bind me up!! This sounds so healthy, with the prunes and yogurt. I didn't know prunes had iron? I'll have to try your recipe out! I've been making a zucinni bread, it's soo good!! :)

  4. Hi Jose,

    Good question!
    You can replace it with an apple :D

    Oh, I hope you can get an oven someday soon!!!

  5. Hi jo!

    I know! Bananas are addictive! I love banana pound cakes and cookies, too!

    I once tried zucinni cookies and were really delicious! I gotta try to make something using zucinni someday soon!!!
