Dairy Free Banana Cake and Slow Food Waitakere Fair Trade Coffee Break

Photo and Recipe by Alessandra Zecchini ©


4 ripe bananas
Juice of one lemon
100 g icing sugar + some for dusting
1 pinch ground cinnamon
100 ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
200 g self rising flour

Mash the bananas with the lemon juice, add the rest of the ingredients (in the order given above) and mix well. Grease a cake mould and pour the cake mixture in, bake at 180°C for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Reverse onto a serving plate (I used my Mum's cameo plate), dust with icing sugar and serve. We have this for breakfast with caffellatte.

  5. Weird Minecraft Glitch - Minecraft Glitches Fix 4.

    I think you can download the software, it can help you to
    play Minecraft offline. My husband has a pretty good sense of humor when it comes to pranks, but before he
    reached for the button to reset the monitor, and before he
    totally blew up, I decided to confess.
