Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madeleine
This is a delicious and unusual dessert using two of my favourite ingredients! The original recipe calls for 250ml sugar but I find that is too sweet for my tastes. Feel free to change the quantity back if you prefer something sweeter.
- 250 g butter
- 200 ml sugar
- 2 eggs
- 500 ml flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 10 ml baking powder
- 4 bananas
- 250 g dates
- 15 ml melted butter
- 5 ml cinnamon
- 30 ml sugar
