It’s a bread as it doesn‘t rise as a cake would.
Still it is fluffy and light and makes a perfect base for breakfast if smudged with butter ( yes butter is good for you 😝) and some home made jam.
It works as a perfect snack when sliced to eat on the go but also as a nice comfort dessert, if served a bit warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dulce de lecce! Yumm 😋
the ingredients below for the basic recipe. I added in brackets alternatives for a healthier option.
Infredients – for a pound bread:
1,5 cup sugar ( I replace with Stevia or a mixture of Agave syrup and crushed dates)
2 table spoon vegetable cooking oil ( canola is good)
2,5 cups flour (use gluten free) or opt for oat flour
1 table spoon baking powder
1,5 tea spoon salt
1,5 cup fresh milk or water
2 bananas (best when ripe)
Mix all ingredients at the same time.
Line a baking tin with butter and a sprinkle of flour.
Add the mixture and
Place in a warm oven.
Bake at 150 degrees for 40 minutes.
In the picture: I covered with my own homemade toffee ( recipe to follow on the blog) and sprinkled almond slices.
