Healthy version of soft and moist Banana Bread/Banana Cake with less sugar and butter.

My mom bakes this cake as a treat for us all the time. Whenever she does, the house will be filled with the aroma of this lovely cake. I love it even more for the fact that this recipe has been revised accordingly to ensure that the cake does not end up too rich or sweet. That is why I can always eat this without any guilt. The sides of the cake being my favourite would be devoured in a blink of the eye. This cake is just awesome accompanied with a hot cup of Nescafe with condensed milk. The thought of it still brings a smile to my face and I really do miss those times. My mother, being health conscious, would not allow us to eat too many pieces at a time. Hence, the ice cream plastic container which is used to store the cake will be placed within her view. As kids, my sister and I would attempt to sneak a few more pieces when mom was not looking! In countries like Australia, the banana cake which I am used to is known as banana bread and is found in almost every cafe and bakery. I have seen them served with whipped cream, toasted walnuts and even ice cream! Sinfully good, I believe.
