The batter for this simple banana cake with Greek yogurt is whipped up in minutes in a mixer or food processor. Then it’s baked in a bundt pan.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (4 oz), melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 13/4 all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting pan
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. Combine the sugars, bananas, butter, eggs, yogurt and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor  or in a mixing bowl. Process until smooth with a food processor or use an electric mixer.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the bundt pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  5. Cool the cake for 15 minutes before removing from the pan.  Allow the cake to cool completely and dust with powdered sugar before serving.


You can add 1 cup mini chocolate chips to the batter.
