My colleague had his birthday a while back, and brought some banana cake that his wife traditionally makes for his birthday to work to share. It was so wonderful I had to get the recepie, which his wife gladly gave.
However, I wanted to modify the cake to be vegan (I'm currently experimenting with vegan baking quite a lot), so I did and it turned out fantastic! I brought some of my cake to work for my colleague and had him take some for his wife, too, and they both liked the cake very much. I thought you might too, so here's the vegan recepie:
4 very ripe bananas
150g (vegan) butter/margarine
2 tablespoons of soy flour
4 tablespoons of water
400 g flour
1 pack baking powder (ca. 14 grams)
100g coconut flakes
some rum (or rum aroma)
Pre-heat the oven to 190º degrees and grease a loaf pan.
Mash the bananas in a bowl with a fork. In a second bowl, mix the sugar with room-temperature butter untill the mixture is foamy. Add the flour, soy flour, baking powder and the water and mix well.
Finally add the coconut flakes, rum and the mashed bananas and fold them into the dough. If the dough is very stiff, just mix some water into it, so you can easily pour the dough into the loaf form.
Bake the cake ca. 45 minutes on the middle rack. Eat. Enjoy!
As you can see in the picture I divided the dough into two forms, but that's just because I wanted to take the smaller form to work to share the cake. The dough should fit into one big loaf pan as well.
