125g soft brown sugar
2 large eggs
2-3 very ripe bananas
150ml plain yoghurt (soya or dairy)

  3. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is light and creamy.
  4. Beat the eggs in one at a time adding a tbs of flour with each egg.
  5. Mash the bananas thoroughly and beat those into the mixture.
