It's all snowy outside, it's my Sunday, and Alex came home with a big bunch of ripe needing-to-be-eaten bananas last night. I don't like bananas by themselves, so I bake them into things. I wanted to make my banana pancakes I posted about last month, but I got fed up cooking them because they were sticking to the pan today so I made them into a cake. Smart choice. They were really good.
Breakfast Banana Cake
1 c rice flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 T sugar
a pinch of nutmeg and a bigger pinch of cinnamon
1 T veg oil
1 c orange juice, other juice, or soymilk
1 overripe banana (or 2)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all the dry ingredients. Mash the banana with the milk and oil, then add to flour mix. stir well to combine, and let sit about 5 minutes while you heat up your cast iron pan. Put a little tiny bit of oil in your pan or coat using a paper towel, then when hot, pour batter into pan and put in hot oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until it looks like it's done on the top. Slice into pieces and frost with nutella or peanut butter. Alternately, sprinkly sugar and cinnamon before baking and eat plain.
