My First Bake For 2018 - Moist Greek Yoghurt Banana Cake

Happy New Year to all my readers, friends and loved ones.  Wow, I have not been baking much in 2017 and I hope to be able to do more baking this year.  My baking hobby has taken a back seat for  the whole of 2017 while I indulged in my current craze, gardening and photography.  Hope to be in baking mode again in 2018.  For a start, this is my first bake for 2018 - Moist Greek Yoghurt Banana Cake is really packed with banana and uses Greek yoghurt instead of milk :p  This is so yummy good that hubby gave me the due compliment for once !  He likes it moist and packed with banana.

I had two slices at one is great to be back in baking mode again

the greek yoghurt makes the cake moist and delicious
