Ingredients
  Cake flour 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Non-fat instant milk powder 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Reduced calorie chocolate pudding mix 1 (1 Envelope)
  Double-acting baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Eggs 4 , separated
  Granulated sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Evaporated skimmed milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Dash
  Frozen dairy whipped topping 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), thawed
  Bananas 2 Medium
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line bottom of 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pan with wax paper; spray bottom and sides with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
2. Onto sheet of wax paper or a paper plate sift together flour, dry milk powder, chocolate pudding mix, and baking powder; set aside.
3. In large mixing bowl combine egg yolks and sugar; using electric mixer, beat for 2 minutes. Alternating ingredients, gradually beat in chocolate pudding mixture and milk; add vanilla extract. Beat at medium-high speed until mixture is thoroughly combined.
4. In separate bowl, using clean beaters, beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. Gently stir 1/4 of beaten egg whites into batter; carefully fold in remaining egg whites.
5. Pour batter into sprayed baking pan and set pan in middle of center oven rack; bake for 25 to 30 minutes (until a cake tester, inserted in center, comes out clean).
6. Let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove cake from pan and set on wire rack to cool.
7. Remove wax paper from cooled cake; transfer cake to serving platter and spread top with whipped topping. Peel and slice bananas; transfer slices to small bowl, add lemon juice, and toss gently. Decoratively arrange banana slices over whipped topping; to serve, cut cake into 8 equal pieces.
