  • Summary

    A great way to use very ripe bananas, this easy-to-make cake incorporates everything you love about banana bread and adds a few more favorites—chocolate, walnuts, and cinnamon—for good measure. (It's also much more tender, with a light, moist crumb.)

    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened, plus 2 tablespoons, melted and cooled
    • 1 cup sugar, divided
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/4 cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
    • 2/3 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
