Banana snack cake recipe
This banana snack cake is the ultimate snack cake recipe. Light and small enough for a snack, because it’s made with Greek yogurt and less sugar than traditional cake, you won’t feel guilty about having a piece (or two!) or feeding it to kiddos.
With a slightly sweet and perfectly tangy frosting, your guests will be requesting this cake over and over again.
Banana desserts are a huge favorite in my house. My husband in particular goes nuts over banana desserts. A few years ago I made this banana caramel swirl cake, and it’s one I have made repeatedly and always gets rave reviews, so I thought I’d step it up a notch and make it a little more kid friendly (less sugar and a few more good ingredients like Greek yogurt!).
Since bananas are one of my son’s favorites, I made this cake for his 1st birthday party. I made him a little cupcake and then doubled the recipe and made it into a larger 9 by 13 pan for all the adult guests.
Greek yogurt frosting
What really sets this cake apart is the Greek yogurt frosting. Greek yogurt has a wonderful tang to it, and it works really well for creating smooth and creamy frosting for banana cake. I’ve included instructions on how to make Greek yogurt frosting in the recipe below.

Makes 1 8x8 square dish of cake or 12 cupcakes. You could also use a 9 x 9 pan, it just won't be as thick! Nutrition information isn’t always accurate.
Recipe easily doubles, I like doubling it and making it for adult parties in a 9 x 13 pan, baking time increases when doubling the batch to around 40 minutes.
Store leftover cake/cupcakes in the refrigerator for up to a week in an air tight container.
