Banana Hazelnut Bread or Cake
This is based on the recipe for banana cake by Elaine Gottschall in Breaking the Vicious Cycle. The hazelnut flour gave it more of a look and feel of wheat then anything else I've tried. Unfortunately, I also discovered that I'm allergic to hazelnut flour. This can be a bread or a cake, depending on how much honey you add to it.
3 cups hazelnut flour (other flour should work as well)
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup melted butter or ghee
1 tsp baking soda (optional, not GAPS legal)
2 extra ripe mashed bananas
honey- 1/3 cup for bread, 2/3 cup for cake
Mash bananas with a fork in a large mixing bowl. Add other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased cake, loaf, or baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes, or until the top springs back when poled. Baking time will vary depending on the shape of pan used.
