Eating fruits and veggies is my only version of being healthy. I’d love to hit the gym but let’s face it if it isn’t high on my priority list it isn’t getting done. When it comes to baking it’s always been about doing it right, my kinda right! So, bring me the eggs and the sugar and the butter and the flour; don’t ask me to make you something without what I considered the essential ingredients.
So when recipe testing using Kadhali Gluten Free Raw Banana Flour, I was fairly convinced that I’d need to test this recipe a couple of times before I came up with something I was happy with, and then too I was sure I’d have to come up with an icing or sauce of some kind that would elevate the cake. But imagine my surprise when on the first try I got a scrumptious, healthy, ‘give-me-one-more-piece-of-this-sweet-bake’ treat!
Kadhali Gluten Free Raw Banana Flour not only adds to the flavor but also the texture of your cake leaving you with a delicious, soft, moist healthy tea-time treat with a cake-crumb to live for. I’m already planning the next occasion to bake this coconut loaf with Kadhali’s beautiful product and I can’t wait to show it off.
- 200g butter
- 200g caster sugar
- 200g flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- 3-4 tbsp whole milk
- 75g desiccated coconut & 2-3 tbs for dusting the loaf tin
1) Butter and dust (with desiccated coconut) a medium sized loaf tin. Pre-heat your oven to 230 C.
2) Beat together the butter and caster sugar until smooth and creamy. Tip in the sifted flour & baking powder, crack in the eggs and beat again till smooth. With a spatula fold in the desiccated coconut (you can roast this before you add it to your mix). Add in the milk 1 tbsp at a time till your loaf resembles a cake batter.
3) Bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes. Your cake is ready when an inserted skewer comes out clean!
So, am I a convert to healthy baking? Definitely! But that does not mean I won’t be making the butter-laden, flour-sifted variety; it just means that once in a while I will be doing healthy, happily and without cringing.
