I was in the mood for something sweet. Well, that’s not true. I wanted to get rid of all the super browning bananas on my countertop and in my fridge. I’d made about all the smoothies i cared to drink and needed to ditch those babies and fast. Since i wasn’t in the mood for banana bread and i wanted something i could make quick, this recipe came to mind. Plus i wanted to do something with the dates that seemed to be wasting away in the pantry. Seems like banana, dates and honey go quite well together.
3 ripe bananas, smashed
¼ cup butter, melted
½ cup coconut oil
½ to ¾ cup raw honey
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups all-purpose baking mix (i used Pamela’s Gluten and Wheat free baking mix)
8 dates, pitted and rough chopped
In a large mixing bowl add bananas and smash them until they are slightly runny. Add melted butter, coconut oil, honey and mix well. Next, add beaten eggs and mix until just incorporated. Baking mix should be added one cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Last, stir in chopped dates.
Coat a bunt pan with coconut oil. Spoon cake batter into bunt pan. Place in a 350° oven for about 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Let cool and then remove cake from pan. Slice, eat and enjoy 😉
