If you have been following my blog, I hope you have tried making a super easy healthier cake using olive oil. I discovered how easy it was when I first made the Nectarine Cake recently. Once you are used to it, with all things ready, you only need about 5 minutes to mix, pour into the tin and about 20 - 25 minutes to bake.
To date I have made 8 Blueberry Cakes using the same basic recipe, 8 days in a row!!!! Sounds crazy huh. I actually told my children that I was going to stop making it because I was bored making the same thing everyday. They thought I am weird….hmmmm. They felt I should be happy that they liked it!!! I know, they were right…..I should be happy that they eat this much healthier cake. But that doesn’t change my mind and how I feel about baking it EVERYDAY!
I know, why ask permission. Just change! So, I made orange cake and carrot cake the next 2 days for a change, using the same recipe. Know what? They actually liked it very much too. Of course I was very happy….*big smiles*.
Then I had friends over for tea over the weekend and I thought I should try using cocoa and bananas to make Chocolate Banana Cake. The cake came out very moist and delicious. I just couldn’t wait. I ate 2 pieces right away. Didn’t have time to make any chocolate sauce. I’m sure the chocolate sauce would make it even more delicious, or may be chocolate ice cream…mmm.
If you had not been successful in making cake, try making a cake with the basic cake ingrediesnt from my Super Easy No Dairy Nectarine Cake. It’s really super easy, super simple, and super quick. Besides, there’s very little to wash up. I have been making cake with this simple basic recipe everyday. I hope by now you are convinced. If you are not convinced, you are going to read more when I post the orange cake and the carrot cake….*BIG wink*.
Now here is my Super Easy o Dairy Chocolate Banana Cake recipe:
1/2C olive oil
Put Ingredients A into a mixing bowl. Whisk until combined.
1//4C cocoa powder
1t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
Sieve Ingredients B into egg mixture.
3 medium bananas
Mash up the bananas coarsely with a fork. Don’t mash it up too much. It’s nice to see the banana pieces when baked and also nice to bite into it.
Add to the mashed banana to the batter above. Mix well. Pour into a baking tin lined with baking paper and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 25 minutes or when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Do not over bake.
Wait a while before cutting. It’s very moist and delicious. I like it just as it is or you can pour chocolate sauce over it. I know chocolate lovers would love that.
Quite a few friends have tried making cake using this basic recipe. Now it’s your turn. Have fun baking! I am going to have lots of fun baking more cakes. Hope you join me. Nothing is better than homemade because you are in control of what goes into it.
