Laurie Sanders (rhinemaidens3) posted the original version of this cake, and it sounded delicious, but called for oil, whole eggs, and butter. Since I'm on a weight loss journey, the first thing I always try to do when I see a recipe that sounds good is figure out how to "lighten" it up. This is my version. Keep in mind, I used the "light" products, but I will probably push the envelope and try some fat free items next time.

How to Make Banana Sour Cream Cake - Light Version

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350*. While the oven is preheating, mix the first 5 ingredients together in a mixing bowl for 2 1/2 minutes. Pour into a cake pan that has been sprayed with pan spray, and bake for approx. 30 minutes.
  2. While cake is baking, whip the ICBINB - Light and the whipped cream cheese together for about 2 minutes, then add vanilla and powdered sugar and blend well. After cake cools, spread frosting over the top.
  3. I cut this cake into 24 pieces. Nutrition Information PER PIECE: 166 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 30 grams carbohydrates. It tastes very rich, and will satisfy a sweet tooth without wrecking your meal plan.
