Moist banana and pecan cake
This cake went down very well with all involved. It is moist and soft, best served warm with some coconut macadamia cream or raw whole cream. The pecan nuts on top give it a lovely crunch!
Peel about a dozen ripe to very ripe bananas and put them into the blender. Add 4 handfuls of pecans, 2 Tbs coconut flour, 5 dried figs, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 Tbs bicarb soda and 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar. Blend until smooth. Put into a greased (I use coconut oil, seems to stick less than other oils) oven dish (pictured is a rectangular ceramic dish). Crush 1 – 2 handfuls of pecan nuts in a mortar and pestle until broken up. Sprinkle over the top.
Bake at 160C for around 1/2 hour – 40 minutes. Check regularly to see whether it is cooked. The inside is still very moist, more like a pudding. Take out of the oven when edges are dark brown and cake is slightly browned. Share around and enjoy!
