I made this cake again on TV this week and it always proves to be a great success, not only in the taste and texture but also in the response from the audience.
In a Mediterranean Diet we go back to old traditions to the days when processed food was not around. I have been testing a line of new recipes for the last 5 years and here is one of my favorite ones.
For the banana and coconut, nearly-all-in-one cake with no butter and no sugar you wil need:
in a large bowl sieve the flour and cornflour. Add the bicarbonate of soda and coconut. Mix.
In another bowl use a hand blender to process the bananas, lemon juice, egg yolks, vanilla, ricotta.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time and mix in using a metal spoon.
add the beaten egg whites. Mix in gently.
Immediately pour the cake mix into a prepared cake tin and bake in a preheated oven at 170c for 35/40 minutes.
