This cake is moist inside and crisp outside, even though it doesn't contain eggs or dairy products.

Ingredients: 1 pound cake

3 g

40 g

1. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Put the bananas into a bowl and mash to a puree. Add the raw cane sugar, salt and oil, and mix well.
2. Sift the ♦ ingredients, add to the Step 1 bowl, and fold in with a spatula. Add raisins and chopped walnuts to taste.
3. Pour the batter into a pound cake tin, and drop the tin from a hight of 2-3 cm a few times (this removes air bubbles that may be trapped in the batter).
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180℃ for 30 minutes.
5. Insert a skewer into the cake and if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
6. You can use any kind of vegetable oil. However, I wouldn't recommend olive oil as it has a very distinctive taste and aroma.
7. I use raw can sugar, but use any type of sugar. (Use maple sugar or brown sugar for extra flavor.)
