this easy banana chocolate chip yogurt skillet cake is made in one pan and is so tender and delicious you’ll have a hard time keeping it around for long!



  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cake spice (*see note)
  • 1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (all-purpose would also work here)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup plain greek or skyr yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter in the skillet on the stove top over medium low heat (being careful not to let it burn).
  3. Remove from heat and in the same skillet, add the sugar, vanilla, egg, cinnamon, cake spice (if usig), mashed bananas & salt.  Whisk well to combine.
  4. To the skillet add baking soda, baking powder and flour.  Using a rubber spatula carefully fold to incorporate the dry ingredients (this part can get a little messy so if you don’t like mess, put a towel under the pan to catch what falls).
  5. Once the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated, fold in yogurt followed by the chocolate chips until everything is well combined.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean (or with just a few wet crumbs).  Since every oven is different, you may want to start checking at around 35 minutes to ensure you don’t over cook it.


  • If you do not have cake spice on hand, you can either just omit it or sub in 1/2 tsp more of ground cinnamon.
