French toast, pancakes, pan-fried… I think it is pretty obvious I don’t have an oven and am really trying to get creative when it comes to baking. I will expand into rice dishes and kimchi soon… but my stubbornness is a little restless and wants to prove to the world… (or myself) that I don’t need an oven to bake…
WOW… I really dislike that photo of my kitchen. Normally when I am in the kitchen I am SURE to keep it tidy… but with approximately 15cm of counter space I don’t really have much of a choice…
You can’t really go wrong with fried bananas… it really adds a bit of extra banana-ness to the recipe… and a wonderful aroma to a tiny apartment! I would have added some rum… but all I have in my cupboard is some gin and I don’t think that would go well with the bananas for this recipe.
These banana cakes brightened my day when I couldn’t find a bicycle to rent. I hope they brighten your day as well! Be sure to be creative, I added some peanut butter and peanuts on top of mine but for an even MORE decadent dessert you could make a peanut butter icing and drizzle some dark chocolate on top… and a side serving of ice cream? I think so!!
Considering I didn’t use an oven, these banana cakes turned out to taste very similar to banana bread. I think it really has to do with cooking the banana twice. Also, I would highly recommend eating them once they have cooled so the banana flavour has time to develop.
Hope you enjoy! Missing you lots,
