While baking for a whole month, how can I not bake for myself? So this month I will bake some dishes just for myself. The recipes would be low carb and gluten free perfect for my diet. As I am near my goal, I have started being lenient in the diet. I take fruits occasionally. One of them is banana. I mostly use it as a sweetener in recipes which helps in avoiding stevia or erythritol. And I also love banana flavour, so I am extremely happy when I make these treats for myself. Recently I came across a two ingredient pancake recipe, which has just eggs and banana. I make it regularly for Sruti. Her favourite is the chocolate version which I made into crepes (check out the recipe) And then looking at the texture of the crepes, I wanted to try it as a cake.
So I made this one day for my lunch. Yes, I have cakes for lunch just to finish my eggs. I added a little bit of baking powder to get the fluffiness of the cake. I was so excited when the cake rose in the oven. It turned out amazing. I used a small banana, because I didn’t want to make it too sweet. For me it was perfect, because I love bitter cakes nowadays. But please add an extra banana or use a larger one if you are making it. It would give the necessary sweetness. Look at the texture! For just three ingredients, it has come our pretty good. But never compare a normal cake with a low carb cake. They are different, but this satisfies that cravings without going off the diet. I have used 99% dark chocolate for topping. But use whichever chocolate you prefer. If making for kids, use a sweet chocolate and more bananas. They would love it.
