I can't for the love of god eat the fruit itself, but I like things that taste like banana, artificial forbidden stuff, like banana ice cream or banana chewing gum. Sounds healthy, right?
I fell in love with this cake years ago and now I converted it to be without refined sugar. It's not the same, sometimes I really miss baking with sugar, it was so easy.
Don't get me wrong, the cake tastes great, it's just not the memory I had of it.
It's still tasting like banana without looking the banana in the face.
120g butter, very soft
175g silan/date syrup
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2tsp baking powder
50g walnuts, chopped
Grease a loaf tin.
Mash the bananas in a bowl and set aside while making the cake batter.
Mix the butter and silan to a smooth paste. Add the eggs one at a time and mix using a whisk.
Add the flour, soda, salt and baking powder and mix well.
Add the bananas and mix.
Add the walnuts and mix.
Pour the batter into the greased loaf tin and bake for about 50-60 minutes. Check with a toothpick in the middle of the cake.
After about 40 minutes I put a baking tray on the top shelf of the oven, above the cake, so it doesn't get too dark on the top.
