I try to serve a snack for everyone. At first I pulled a banana coconut cake out of the freezer, but then one of the families with a child allergic to a bunch of foods, including banana, decided that it worked out to come today, after all!
Uh oh. I had to quickly figure out an allergy-free snack besides the carrots that were in my fridge!
Here's what I came up with:
Mix together :
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups oat bran
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 T. baking powder
1/2 cup oil
1 c. sugar
2. cups water
1 cup raisins (unsweetened. I used some of my "stash" of Trader Joe's organic raisins)
Combine, breaking up all the lumps. Pour into a cake pan (mine was 8" X 12")
Bake at 350 F (175 C) for about 1 hour
It tastes great, but it's a bit crumbly, as it has no eggs! But it was a hit! The name was a bit confusing, as there is no "raisin bran" cereal in this cake, but there are raisins, and there is bran! I figured I can keep the name. It is accurate, after all!
