Banana and coconut cake (Paleo)

2014-01-24 17.15.37

A sweet treat.

I have seen a few versions of this cake and thought it sounded so delicious that l decided to make my own. It is a very soft and moist cake with a lovely coconut and banana flavour, as well a being gluten, processed sugar and dairy free.

You will need a greased and lined loaf tin. I greased mine with organic coconut oil and my loaf tin was made of glass. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Ingredients:

6 Medjool dates chopped in the food processor (seeds removed)

4 medium sized ripe bananas (mashed)

1/2 a cup of filtered water

1/2 a cup of melted organic coconut oil

4 free range eggs (beaten)

2 tablespoons raw organic honey (or just organic honey)

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup coconut flour

1 cup hazelnut or almond meal

1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Method:

Mix together the first six ingredients (all the moist ones). Add the dry ingredients and gently mix through. Pour into the baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula. Place into the oven and cook until golden. This cake is very moist so it needs to be cooked well. I let mine sit in the tin for a while when l took it out of the oven and let it cool on a rack before cutting.
