Recipe: Banana and Pecan Traybake

July 31, 2018

I found this in You magazine supplement from the Daily Mail. I love reading the recipes that are extracted from books - this one was Davina McCall's. They always have a range of cooking recipes, alternative baking with healthier substitutes or just naughty treats!


Anyway, after 'Banana-gate' I thought I'd post a recipe that used many bananas! Sorry Joolz. I actually used only half the amount of maple syrup the ingredients suggests and it still tastes delicious! 


110g butter, soft

200g maple syrup

4 ripe bananas

4 tbsp whole milk (I use nut milk)

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

175g ground almonds

100g buckwheat flour

1 tsp cinnamon

100g pecans, chopped 

extra pecans to garnish


-Pre-heat oven to 180/Fan 160/Gas 4

-Grease tray/tin
-Place all ingredients except pecans into food processor and blend
-Stir in pecans

-Pour into chosen tray/tin

-Decorate with whole pecans

-Bake until middle comes out clean (my tray took approx 40-45 minutes)


(TOP TIP: Once cooled, cut it upside down so your garnished pecans don't sink into your cake as you try and cut it)
