Banana Snacking Cake

Loaf cakes hold up well during shipping, and a slice can stand in for breakfast on a busy morning. This healthy version is made with potassium-packed bananas, canola oil, low-fat yogurt, and just 1/3 cup of sugar.

Wrap baked treats such as snacking cakes, quick breads, and muffins first in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil for maximum protection and freshness.
