Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1 Cake


 Preheat the oven to approx. 180 ° C and lay baking paper on an extended tray (approx. 23cm). Mix the linseed in a bowl with water and leave it to stand for 6-8 minutes until a thick consistency is obtained.

 Spelled flour, ground walnuts, baking powder, vanillin powder and salt are put together in a bowl and stirred together. A further bowl is then used to stir milk, coffee, coconut oil, maple syrup and the crushed bananas. Subsequently, the linseed is added and stirred until finally everything is added to the mass of flour, walnuts and baking powder. Mix them all until the dough is formed.

Now pour the dough evenly into the mold and sprinkle the surface with the remaining walnuts and the coconut sugar. Now the cake needs only about 60 minutes. Bake at 180 ° C. When removing, verify with the rod test. However, the cake can be very moist due to the bananas and the coffee. Finally let it cool down and enjoy!

Ready. Enjoy!
