Prep Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 45 minutes
Servings 12 servings


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 6 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk room temperature
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt room temperature
  • 2 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • Preheat oven to 325F. Lightly grease and flour a 10-in fluted tube pan. Set aside.
  • Place butter and coconut sugar in a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk, yogurt, mashed banana, and vanilla until smooth. With mixer running on medium speed, add egg mixer in 3 additions, beating 1 minute in between additions. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry mixture to liquid, gently stirring until no streaks of flour remain.
  • Scrape batter into prepare pan and smooth top with a spatula. Bake at 325F 70-75 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool pound cake in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • While cake is cooling, prepare the glaze: In a double-boiler, melt chocolate chips and oil until smooth and melted. Remove from heat and immediately drizzle over cooled pound cake. Cut into slices and serve.
