My toddler seems to only eat bananas if baked in cake. I personally have not tried this loaf cake since I am allergic to bananas. I made it for a friend who said that she couldn't believe how yummy and moist it is. The original recipe is from Bakin' Without Eggs. This recipe has a few adaptations. Photos coming soon!
what you need:
4 ripe bananans, mashed
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour ( I play around with flour mixture)
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup sugar (I make with 1/2 cup maple syrup for my toddler)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons orange juice
what to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter loaf pan
In a large bowl, mash bananas. Add in flours, sugar/maple syrup, salt, baking soda, oil and orange juice. With a wooden spoon, mix until smooth.
Spoon out batter into prepared pan.
Bake for about 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
*I add in a handful of finely chopped kale. The kale specks blend in with the banana specks!
