    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    • 1/2 cup oat bran or 1/2 cup natural bran

    • 1 banana, very ripe well mashed (or about 100 g - 3 oz of unsweetened apple sauce, or pureed prunes)
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 cup honey (N.B. Those who wish a sweeter cake may add) (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the oatmeal and the buttermilk in a bowl (a bit in advance so the oats soften)- mix well Add dried fruit.
    2. 2

      This cake was really healthy tasting and a satisfying/ filling and guilt free snack. I added Stevia powder for extra sweetness (natural sugar substitute). I would recommend storing the cake in the fridge to keep it for longer.

      I agree with Roosie that this is not really a cake, more like a breakfast quick bread, but a lovely one! I added 1/2 ts liquid stevia extract (my incorrigible sweet tooth...). I used a banana, wheat bran and "fake buttermilk", made of milk a a tbs white vinegar.

      Now, I think calling this a cake might be a bit of a stretch (unless you put some nice buttercream icing on it, which really defeats the whole point of this, doesn't it? ;)) especially since its baked in a loaf pan, but it is still quite a tasty little loaf. I used 3/4 cup chopped prunes and 1/4 cup raisins and a very, very ripe banana. I used 1/4c yogurt (whole) and 1 1/4 cups milk (2%) plus a tsp of lemon juice to fake buttermilk. I did add the 1/8 cup honey, but this is really not very sweet. I also used wheat bran for the bran. It makes a very nice filling and high fiber breakfast slice, but the oats form a nice crunchy-ish outer crust. The banana flavor is very mild which is nice, IMO. It just adds a bit of flavor ans sweetness. I wish there had been a measure for the cinnamon, because I totally forgot it until I was putting the loaf into the oven. I sprinkled between 1/8tsp-1/4tsp over top. I think I would probably say 1/2tsp would be a nice amount to add flavor without being too strong. Nice dense bread- it certainly tastes healthy, but IMO that's not a bad thing! I think this needs a little extra sweetening for most peoples tastes (including mine and I often reduce the sugar in recipes!). Good snack or breakfast that will really fill you up and satisfy your hunger (I'd like to see a Pop Tart do that!)- I think this might make a nice piece of toast- you could spread with jam (or butter or cream cheese, if you dare!) to sweeten it up a bit. Thanks for a nice recipe- we're enjoying it. :)
