banana orange cake with yogurt glaze

This cake reminds me of home. Not only has my mom been making it for years, but it also makes regular appearances at our family gatherings. It is lighter in colour and less dense than banana bread. The orange zest in the cake brightens up the banana flavour, as does the citrusy yogurt glaze drizzled over it. This cake is sweet (but not too sweet) and perfect as either a casual dessert or a mid-afternoon snack.
