Banana cake. Everyone needs to have a recipe. Why? It's good, and if you've never had some you won't really understand. Like bananas? Try it! Don't like bananas? Try it! It's like an amazing win-win situation.
It tastes like: bananas and goodness. It is sweet with a gooey cake texture. You will not believe that this cake is not only nourishing, but good for you!
This stuff is so good I almost died. Enough said.
makes one 9x13 pan
2 1/2 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
10-12 drops liquid stevia
3 REAL eggs
2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 cup organic coconut flour
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
pinch xantham gum
1-2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp grassfed butter
1/2 cup ground walnuts
2 tsp organic cane sugar
2 Tbsp packed organic light brown sugar
To make your banana cake:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a glass 9x13 pan. I like to use left over butter wrappers or Misto olive oil spray.
2. In a large bowl sift together dry ingredients.
3. In a small bowl, mash bananas with a potato masher. Add maple syrup and stevia.
4. In another small bowl beat eggs.
5. To the large bowl with dry ingredients, add wet ingredients: mashed bananas, eggs and melted coconut oil. Fold together with a spatula until combined.
6. To make the topping - place all ingredients in a bowl and use your fingers to smoosh the butter into the sugar and walnuts to make a crumbly mixture.
7. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with walnut topping.
8. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until the top has set and a stick inserted through the cake comes out clean. Let pan + cake cool on a wire rack overnight. Eat for breakfast the next day. Restrain eating it all yourself.
Look at the texture. I pulled apart a corner of it so you could really see the yummy banana insides. Well, actually the cake was like that when I got there. Someone was having fun with the cake or eating it or something. And as you can see, it's almost gone. We all definitely did that.
Like I said before, this cake is so good I almost died. I almost died yesterday at breakfast, and the day before, and today. Almost dying when it comes to baked goods is good. Very, very good. Unless it's your neighbor dropping a piano on your head from the 40th flour because the burned cookie smell is drifting into his window. That is not advised.
