Definitely my favourite plantain recipe of the week so far! Who would have thought that you could bake a cake with plantain as the base?! Well, through giving a healthy twist to my grandmother’s recipe, I managed to make this delicious and healthy treat! Here is how I made it:-

 

What you will need:- 

2 very ripe plantains

freshly grated ginger- 1tsp

3 tablespoons of tom brown/oat flour/plain flour. (Tom Brown is a maize-based flour used to make porridge in Ghana).

seasoning- 1 tsp of chilli powder and a pinch of salt

1 tbsp of coconut oil (instead of palm oil)

 

How to :-

1) Mash two ripe plantains in a bowl.

5) Bake for mins. The best part of the whole process is smelling warm ginger in the air whilst it bakes…yum!

6) It is ready when you stick a toothpick in the mixture and it comes out dry.
