That crispy sugared-almond topping right there…that’s the best part.

Sure, this banana bread is tender, moist, not too sweet, with little pops of banana in each slice.

But it’s that sugar-crisp crust that pushs this bread into nirvana-land.

The crispy, caramelized sugar crust and that bit of almond crunch is just spot on.

And I hate saying spot on.

I would rather say rock on.

Or party on.

Also, I got to use Greek yogurt in this thing. I just thought I’d throw it in there.

And it totally worked.

I find eggs magical at times.

I love them for a lot of reasons, but I’m really loving what they did for these upside-down cakes.

The mini-Bundts are golden-edged, totally addictive and low-fat — two yolks. That’s it.

I’m not a big fan of “light” cakes and muffins.

Really good cake.

So I did a little riff on angel food cake — simplified it, left in a couple of yolks and added that yummy caramelized upside-down part.

Want to eat fudgy chocolate brownies without using a cup of butter and a pound of chocolate? For now, me too.

Spring is only four months away. And I want to re-wear the shorts I wore last summer.

Except I was using the third notch on that belt I also wore last summer. And now I don’t wear a belt.

So…I’m hitting my low(er) fat phase.

HOWEVER — I can’t sacrifice my late-night sugar snack and I have to bake almost every day. So I gave these a try.

It’s from the “The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook.” I love this book.
