Easy bake and no egg cake!

Hello :) 
Hope you all enjoyed the Easter Holidays and  had a wonderful time with your families. 
Because it is spring and we are already looking forward to the bikini body, I know cakes are out of the question, but once in a while, I guess we can indulge ourselves :) 
Here is what I managed to put together, with whatever ingredients I had in the fridge/cabinets. 
It is very easy to bake and not (very) fat either. 

So what you need: 
- 1 banana; 
- 250 gr flour; 
- juice from 1/2 orange;
- 1/2 cup sugar; 
- 2-3 spoons of oil; 
- baking powder; 
- 1 cube of dark chocolate; 
- 50 ml milk; 
- peel from an orange;
- baking paper. 


First, pre-heat the oven at 180 °C. I peeled the orange and grated the little piece of chocolate, also I smashed the banana and squeezed the juice from the orange (only half of it): 


The rest is easy: you need to mix the banana, the chocolate flakes, orange peel & juice, add the sugar, and the oil. And then gradually add the flour. I also mixed the baking powder with a bit of lemon juice and added the milk to the overall dough: 


Then I prepared the baking tray, covering it in baking paper and poured in the dough.
It stays in the over for about 30-40 min, at 180 °C. When it is done, don't take it out immediately, but let it "rest" in the oven. 



The result is very fluffy and yummy, you can actually feel the banana taste. For the future I would try to add more orange ;) 



Bon App├ętit!

Banana bread

Helloooo :)

Don't you have days when you crave for something sweet but easy to bake, and perhaps healthy? I do. And recently I was wondering how to make banana bread and I found out - the result is delicious :)
So here it is the recipe I used:

ingredients: 

  • 2 cups flour 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • vanilla sugar or vanilla essence
  • 100 gr butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 bananas 
  • baking powder 
  • baking paper

estimated time: baking 1 hour + 20 min preparation

Start by preheating the oven at 180 degrees. 
Then separate the egg yolks from the white parts and mix the white parts very very well, with just a pinch of salt. 



In another bowl, mix the yolks with sugar, vanilla sugar. the flour, butter and baking powder. The baking powder needs to be mixed with some lemon juice before. 
You can peel the bananas and blend them or just use a fork for this purpose. 


Then you can add the bananas in the bowl with flour and at the end add the white parts and mix gently. 
Now it's the moment to pour the entire mix in a tray which you covered with baking paper before. 



Put it in the oven at 180 degrees C and leave it there, without opening the door for one hour.
After one hour, you can check if it's ready - the wooden stick test - and if it'sok, still leave it in oven for 10-15 min to get colder.


You can serve it like this or next to vanilla ice- cream. It makes a perfect cake for coffee or tea.
Bon-appetit :)
