One Pan Banana Cake

I have a thing about washing up - I hate it! So now i only make cakes that use one pan - it's easy and tastes great.


100g coconut oil (lovely healthy fat that tastes great in banana cake)

70g brown sugar (some sweetness but not too much - use a date syrup or equivalent if you like)

1 tsp cinnamon (or more if you fancy, or none if you don't)

2 tsp baking powder (to help it rise)

2 ripe bananas mashed (~225g) (if you use more it will be more moist)

220g wholemeal spelt flour (or equivalent)

30g chopped pecans (or more if you love them)

50g chopped walnuts (or less if you're not so keen, but they are one of the most nutritious nuts)

2 tbsps ground almonds (just because...)

3 large eggs whisked (great protein source & helps make the cake a cake!)


In a large'ish saucepan:

- melt the coconut oil & sugar together gently

Once melted, add the following ingredients one at a time & after each, give a little mix

- mashed banana

- the nuts

- the flour, ground almonds & baking powder

- finally when all of those things are mixed in, add the eggs & beat together until you have a lovely batter

- pour into a loaf tin (I use a liner so it's super easy)

Bake for 40-45 mins at 180 degrees

Eat warm, delicious spread with coconut oil or butter

Add a slice to your kids lunchbox

Even great for breakfast if you are rushing
