I made a carrot and banana cake this week.  Luscious, great combination of flavors and I eliminated processed sugar and used golden raisins ground to a pulp .

You will need:

In the first bowl, add all these ingredients and use a hand blender to bring to a smooth paste
100ml olive oil
125 ml yoghurt
4 egg yolks
250g golden raisins (soaked in water overnight)
2 ripe bananas, chopped

In the second bowl, mix together :
300g self raising flour (sift)
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
50g chopped walnuts
50g coconut

mix the above together then add 100g grated carrot and stir to coat in flour.

In a third bowl:
Beat together the 4 egg whites until they are stiff

Preheat the oven to 160C.
Fold in the dry ingredients into liquid ingredients. Then fold in the egg whites.
pour the cake batter into a prepared cake dish. i used 2 disposable cake moulds of 17cm each.
Bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes.
Allow to cool. We left one plain and we topped the second one with melted chocolate and decorated with sugar roses.
