The recipe looks delicious, but I need to know the volume of the pan because I don't have a Bundt pan, and I also need to know the volume of the banans--small and large are subjective terms--1 cup, 2 cups, how much? And have you ever tried this with yogurt or light sour cream? Many thanks for the help.
