Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups light-tasting olive oil
  • 3/4 cups light-tasting vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Balkan-style plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup mashed banana (about 3)
  • 1 bar (100 g) milk chocolate chopped (about 3/4 cup)
Glaze:
  • 4 oz cream cheese cubed
  • 1 1/2 oz good-quality white chocolate chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/4 cup milk

Method

In large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; stir into egg mixture just until combined. Stir in bananas and milk chocolate. Scrape into greased and floured 10-inch (3 L) fluted tube pan.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan; transfer to rack and let cool completely.

Glaze: In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt cream cheese with white chocolate, stirring, until smooth. Stir in milk to make loose glaze. Spread over cake; let stand until set, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
