Leftover Banana Cake

Posted by on November 23, 2015

IMG_0836   Bananas always look so irresistible to me at the markets. They’re cheap and tasty, and I always buy too many.

When they start to get too ripe to use, I pop them in little snap lock bags in the freezer. And when there’s too many in the freezer, I make this cake.

Quick, simple, tasty & less unhealthy than other similar cakes.


  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 125g pitted dates, chopped
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup Greek or Natural yoghurt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 or 4 very ripe bananas, mashed


  1. Add the flours, bicarb, nutmeg, chopped dates, chia seeds and brown sugar to a bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until evenly distributed.
  2. Whisk the eggs, add yoghurt, milk and bananas. Mix mix mix.
  3. Make a well in the dry mixture, add the wet mixture. Stir until it’s all gooey.
  4. Bake at 180°C for about 35 mins, then turn off the oven and leave for an hour.
  5. Eat! Nom Nom Nom.
