Banana Cupcake

Another cake made with yogurt from The Yogurt Place. With this I finished up all the complimentary yogurt. I always like to substitute sour cream with yogurt in baking as it’s more readily available. Whenever I do grocery shopping, 4 small tubs of strawberry yogurt is a must buy for Be.  She loves yogurt.  My blogging friend, Amelia from Amelia’s De-ssert has just shared with me that eating yogurt in the morning before breakfast is good for skin complexion.  Thanks to Amelia for the tips.  Hurry, let’s indulge in yogurt.  This is my second time baking this recipe and I must say this is a keeper.  The texture is extremely soft to the touch, moist, light and fluffy.
