Bananas come in different sizes. How much, exactly? 1/2 cup? 3/4 cup?

Bananas do come in different sizes and if Test Kitchen suggests 1 large banana then the recipe must definitely need that amount of banana for moistness and flavor. If Test KItchen suggests 1 banana without stating size, then it doesn't matter the size because the recipe will work no matter if alittle extra banana is used or not. Mashed bananas in our baked goods are used for sweetness, moistness, and flavor. In general, 1 small banana equals about 1/3 cup, 1 medium banana equals about 1/2 cup, and 1 large banana equals about 3/4 cup mashed. Hope this helps. :)

I love the idea of banana and peanut butter in a cake! You can satisfy your sweet craving and still feel like you are eating healthily. I do have a question, though. Can you substitute whole wheat flour for the white flour? I am trying to cut out as much flour, sugar and carbs as possible, but I would love to have a cake recipe that is healthier than the ones I usually make. Also, can you substiture honey for the sugar or would that really change the flavor?

Hello! We recommend using half whole wheat flour and half white flour, instead of all whole wheat flour. Also, honey would definitely change the flavor of this cake. We suggest stevia as a sugar alternative. Enjoy!
