Healthier version Banana & Peach cake 💚
Sticky, gooey, moist, dairy free, refined sugar free and full of fruit...
A treaty slice without the sugar crash 💚
This recipe came from the need to use up some very overripe peaches and bananas... I do dislike waste!!
I was about to freeze it all and make some 'nice cream'... but then Cakey inspiration struck....
Eating with compassion for your body doesn't always mean raw veggies and chia seeds... it doesn't mean missing out.. it's just about filling your body with the nutrients it needs and avoiding the stuff that your body won't thank you for... finding a healthier alternative.
This cake is a fantastic example.... I'll outline the recipe below, but I'm not much of a measurer, so the quantities are approximate... but if you bung it all together to end up with a cake mix consistency, then you're onto a winner!
pictured below is a Sticky slice, served with some melted 85% organic chocolate and a blob of coconut milk yoghurt........this tasted utterly decadent and treaty..but you can happily eat this without your body grumbling at you!!
Doesn't look much like a healthy alternative does it!
I added a little coconut blossom syrup to the recipe for extra cakey sweetness, but the 6 whole pieces of fruit in here do a great job of sweetening this naturally 💕
Enough of my babble anyway... here's the good stuff!!
•150g Rye flour
•100g coconut flour (I milled some coconut flakes in my blender)
•pinch of Himalayan rock salt.
•2 tbsp chia seeds.
•1 tsp baking powder.
•1 tsp vanilla (I use organic vanilla powder)
•2-3 tbsp coconut blossom syrup.
•3 very ripe bananas
•3 ripe peaches
•2 tbsp coconut milk drink (or your choice of non dairy milk)
Preheat your oven @180 for a fan oven.
Combine all the dry ingredients together well in a bowl.
Mash the 3 bananas with a fork with the non dairy milk (leaving lumps is a good thing!), mix in the syrup and the egg and add to the dry mixture.
Combine all the ingredients well, you should have a nice gooey cake mixture, now stir in chunks/slices of your peaches, remembering to save some for decoration.
Grease a shallow cake tin with coconut oil and pour in the mixture, and bake for around 25 mins.
(Bear in mind that each oven is different, so keep an eye on it during cooking).
And that's it! All that's left to do is serve up a slice and enjoy that gooey goodness!
As always any feedback is welcome, I love hearing how all yours turned out!
