I've been experimenting with all sorts of recipes to find tasty and healthy snacks to give my little koala. I'm not keen on much sugar in my bub's food so I'm finding other ways to make yummy sweet foods without all the sugar.
This recipe is a long time family favourite. It's my mother's banana cake recipe which I've made with her since I was little. She's been making this recipe for at least 30 years, probably longer. I have no idea where the original is from, we've been making it from her hand-written notes for as long as I can remember. With only a tiny adjustment, its now a healthy and tasty snack for my little person.
It really is a super simple but super tasty recipe! Sugarless Banana Cake.
3 very ripe large bananas (and I mean very ripe! - the browner the sweeter)
2 cups self raising flour
125grams butter or margarine
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1/2 cup of milk
How to do it!
1. Grease a loaf tin and preheat your oven to moderately hot (approx. 190degrees Celsius or 320degrees Fahrenheit).
2. Beat butter and sugar in an electric mixer, eat in eggs one at a time. Add mashed bananas and beat well.
3. Combine bicarb soda and milk and add it to the creamed mixture alternately with sifted flour.
5. Cool and enjoy!
Handy hints: The over ripe sweet bananas will provide more than enough sweetness to stop you from needing any added sugar. Trust me, its sweet enough without the sugar!
