Banana cake

Time for my banana cake recipe!

I was inspired to try and make my own banana cake after seeingĀ this recipe. As always, I didn’t have all of the ingredients called for and I also wanted to add some ingredients that felt like a better choice for me. The result was a nice, light and fluffy cake.

The biggest change in this case is the buckwheat flour I added. My first try was with all flour and I have to be honest here, my boyfriend didn’t enjoy the buchwheat version as much as he did the regular flour version. I, on the other hand, loved the stronger buckwheat flavor and for my diet, it was a good switch.

This banana cake is a really yummy snack for inbetween meals. I also used it to replace lunch once.
