Pesach Banana Cake

Somehow there were several mushy bananas in my kitchen today when I started cooking for Pesach. Really that rarely happens anymore, since my children eat plenty of bananas (although not as many as the guy we saw in the produce department at the supermarket the other day. As he stacked bananas into place, he pulled one banana after another off the bunches and ate them in 2 bites each. We saw him eat 7 (!!) bananas...).

So here's what I did with mushy bananas:

4 bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
2/3 c. sugar 
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix well
2/3 c. potato starch
2/3 c. cake meal
1/2 c. shredded coconut
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
Mix well
Optional: Add
1/2 bag chocolate chips
 Stir till the chips are mixed in

Bake in a loaf pan at 350 F for about 45 min


  1. I also had some mushy bananas in the kitchen this morning. I managed to make them into sugar-free (and non-gebroks) blond Pesach brownies. It looks and smells wonderful. If it's as good as it seems to be, I'll share the recipe on Sunday :-)

    1. You can, but the coconut really does give it a special tropical flavor!
