DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 200 celsius / 395 fahrenheit.
  • Rinse the corn in cold water 2-3 times and drain.
  • Puree corn, apple juice and 1 egg until smooth. The puree will smell strongly of corn, but don't worry. The cake won't taste like this.
  • In a blender, whisk egg whites until very stiff. Meanwhile, transfer the corn to a bowl and add oats.
  • Add baking powder, vanilla and spices to the corn/oat mixture and stir very well. The dough will have a thick oatmeal-like texture. If you want, you can add 1 tsp of peanut butter for extra flavour.
  • Cut the banana into coins and each coin into approximately 6 pieces. Chop the walnuts.
  • Add banana and walnuts to the corn/oat mixture.
  • Use a big flat spoon and scoop an amount equal of 4 tablespoons of the very stiff egg whites into the corn/oat mixture and stir until even.
  • Add the corn/oat mixture to the remaining egg whites, but DON'T STIR UNTIL EVEN.
  • Just mix lightly. There will be puffs of egg white here and there.
  • Add baking sheets to a 10x20 square baking tray or any other equally sized heat resistant tray you may have in handy.
  • Pour the thick mixture into the tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Done! Your fluffy, spicy, moist, sweet, delicious and incredibly healthy cake is ready!
