This light-as-air chocolate cake has a yummy banana flavor. It’s scrumptious as is, but you can also dress it up with nuts or light frostings. —Tina Bellows, Racine, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium bananas)
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Coat a 9-in. square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cream butter, sugar substitute and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in water. Whisk together flour, milk powder, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in bananas.
