  2. Mashed Bananas (ripe bananas)    2
  3. Milk 1/2 cup

Fruit and Nut

  1. Walnuts (chopped)                         1/3 cup
  2. Carrots (grated)                                1 cup

Process:

  1. Preheat the oven for 30 minutes at 175 degree celsius
  2. Take a large bowl and whisk all the dry ingredients together
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients
  4. Add the wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well
  5. Fold in the grated carrots
  6. Dust the walnuts with flour before folding them in the batter
  7. Grease the cake pan and bake for 65minutes till the knife comes out clean
    when using almond flour I bake with both top and bottom heat for the first 50minutes and for the last 10-15 minutes just bake with the bottom heat.
  8. Let the cake cool in the dish for 20minutes before demoulding

Note:

  1. Apple sauce replaces the oil or butter.
  2. Due to bananas and almond flour the cake may become a little moist if kept completely covered or in a sealed container. It will be better to let it air to keep it from getting too moist.
