Do you love simple, easy-to-make recipes which still taste yummy?
We do, as do our grandchildren, so we know this is a real crowd-pleaser, every time. It helps if you have a food processor but even if you don’t, a good bit of elbow grease achieves the same result.
What we love about this recipe is we always have these simple ingredients lying around, so it’s not like we have to go hunting or shopping for them.
A few bananas, some coconut flour or protein powder, peanut butter, hazelnut spread, choc chips, and some dried fruit of your choice and you’re set to go.
Pop it all into the food processor and pulse in 30 second increments followed by scraping down the sides, until you have a good mix to work with.
You don’t want it too wet or it will take forever to cook and risk making the finished cake too dry. Once you have it right, scrape the mixture into a prepared cake tin, sprinkle some extra choc chips on the top, and pop it into the oven while you have a relaxing coffee!
Test the mixture with a toothpick and when it comes out clean it is done. Pop the cake tin on a cooling rack until cold, then up end the tin carefully to remove the cake from the tin. If you try and do this while it is still warm, you risk breaking it in the process.
We put the cake into the fridge next to really make sure it was cold throughout, before using a long sharp knife to cut the cake longways in half and then across into slices.
Try it for yourself using the recipe below. And please let us know what you think.
