For the third day of coconut flour recipes, I have a delicious cake which is low carb and filling. As usual the batter has eggs as I am not very good at baking with out eggs in the low carb recipes. I haven’t still found a way to substitute three or four eggs. The best part is that this recipe doesn’t have any sugar added to it. Not even sugar substitutes. Banana is a wonderful sweetener and gives a nice texture in cakes. So when I started experimenting with this recipe, I added a small banana first. For me it was too sweet, but my daughter found it mildly sweet. So when I made it for her I increased the number to two. It was perfect for her. I don’t make this often, just for some celebrations like our anniversary, hubby’s birthday or any other special occasions.
Usually when I make single serving cakes, I microwave them to make the job easier. That is how I made it first, but then I wanted to try baking the cake. So the next time I made it, I baked it in my OTG and loved it so much. Nothing can beat the colour and texture of a oven baked cake. After trying the baked version, I am now partial to it. So hereafter, I will be baking the cakes for occasions. I have included both versions here and you can see how different they look both inside and outside. But the positive of MW is that it is done in 3 minutes and you can make it when you need a quick treat.
