Sift plain flour and baking soda together. Set aside.

Mix Emborg Butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl once, to incorporate fully. Add one egg at a time, beating well each time.

Add yogurt. Mix to combine thoroughly. Then add the dry ingredients and the cranberries, in two stages. Mix until even, scraping the bowl down.

Mash the bananas coarsely. Add them into the mix, right at the end, folding with a rubber spatula.

Pour into greased cake tin. Bake for around 45 minutes or until cooked through.

Voilà! Enjoy this tasty cake with friends or family!
