Banana and peanut butter bundt cake

22 Sep

I love baking cakes, but the truth is most cakes have high fat and high sugar contents, so they are not very healthy.  When I spot this recipe online I was excited because it will satisfy my baking frenzy and also it is a healthy cake! it is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Surprisingly it turned out great – it is cakey, moist, and perfectly sweet. I prefer to serve it with yoghurt rather than honey. This could be a nice desert or an anytime snack. Here is the original recipe:

Banana and peanut butter bundt cake with honey glaze
By Eleanor Ozich

  • 1 cup peanut butter (any nut butter works well)
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 free range eggs
  • 1/2 cup raisins (any dried fruit works well)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp of runny honey, for the drizzle
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C and grease a cake tin with coconut oil or butter.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in to a large mixing bowl. Using a potato masher, mash the batter until the mixture resembles a smooth paste. You could also place in to a food processor if you have one, and blend until smooth. I quite often do this if I am short on time.
  3. Pour the batter in to the prepared cake tin.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean once inserted.
  5. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, invert carefully on to a plate, and then drizzle with the remaining honey.
