Limiting processed food consumption is very important for our children’s health. Getting them used to healthy eating starts at home and it is not complicated.
Although I am not a fan of sugar, but moderate sugar consumption isn’t bad. After all, our children see lots of temptations wherever they go.
A weekly home baked cake proved to be a great way to limit children’s demands for processed candies and sweets. And since it is baked at home, parents can fully control the ingredients, their quality and their quantity.
Many children prefer bananas over other fruits. Easy to bite and swallow, bananas are a very convenient snack. This instant energy booster is full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and iron.
A very exciting way to eat bananas is by making a banana cake. The recipe below is my children’s favorite. They even love it more than a chocolate cake.
(Makes 20 servings)
– 3 cups of flour
– 2 teaspoon of Baking Powder
– ½ teaspoon of salt
– ¼ cup sugar
– ¼ cup honey
– 1/3 cup oil
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla
– 3 big ripe bananas
– 1/3 cup yogurt
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour your cake pan.
Beat the eggs and the vanilla in a large bowl with a mixer on high speed for 1 minute.
Add the sugar, the honey, and the oil then beat again for another minute.
In another bowl, mash the ripe banana with a fork and add the yogurt to them.
Add the banana mix to the large bowl and beat them again with the mixer until blended.
Finish your mixture by adding all the remaining ingredients and beat them all together.
Bake for 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Enjoy your banana cake with your children for breakfast with a spread of honey or as an afternoon snack!
