LifeScape Recipes: Dr. Wilder’s Banana Cake

Something fun since we’re all cooking at home more! This cake is especially yummy served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Dr. Wilder’s Banana Cake 

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) organic butter (softened)

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil

  • 5-7 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar (or monk fruit sweetener for lower carb; maple syrup also works)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1-2 tsp vanilla

Instructions:

Cream wet ingredients together and blend gently (don’t over-mix)!

Combine 2 & 1/2 cup sifted flour with 1/2 tsp salt + 2 tsp baking soda (I use Pamela’s gluten free whole grain; for paleo option, try coconut or cassava flour but add 1/4 cup nondairy milk, yogurt or sour cream for more moisture).

Combine wet and dry ingredients. 

Bake in greased loaf pans or 13"x9" cake pan at 350 degrees for 40-45min (until inserted toothpick comes out clean).
