I made this cake, and wanted to share my recipe here:
Preheat oven to 180'C (fan oven)
Use a loaf tin liner
Mix together in a bowl:
2 mashed bananas
50g chopped dried apricots
50g seed mix
100g glace cherries
75g jumbo oats
75g ground almonds
75g wholemeal flour/coconut flour (depending on your preference)
50ml olive oil
capful of vanilla essence (although maybe almond essence might be nice as an alternative)
1 egg (optional)
Press the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 45 mins or until brown on top and a knife/skewer comes out clean.
N.B. This cake has got sugar in it from the dried fruits and glace cherries, but it doesn't have any 'added sugar' - I have adapted my recipe from a previous one by Ruth_Canal_Runner, so would like to thank her for helping me to achieve a cake that I find really tasty and I find it fits well into my healthy eating plan, as it makes me feel I can have my cake and eat it!
I'd love to try some alternative recipes for 'no added sugar' cakes, so if anyone knows any really good ones, I'd love to hear about them.
p.s. Flavourfiend has kindly worked out the calories for this cake, and the total cake comes to 2420 calories, and if you cut it into 10 slices, then it is 242 calories per delicious slice!
Variation: More recently, I've been swapping the 75g ground almonds and 75g wholemeal flour/coconut flour and simply used 150g of spelt wholemeal flour, and it's made a really good consistency and flavour.
