I love plantain, I love it fried, I love it boiled, grilled, steam and I even eat it raw. I sometimes love to make plantain cake which is my favorite way to enjoy plantain and here the recipe.
Plantain Cake Recipe


1 or 2 over ripe plantains
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ cup Sugar, I prefer to use brown sugar
2 eggs
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil


In bowl, beat the eggs and add the sugar. Then add flour, baking powder, salt and mix well.
In another bowl mash the plantains, do not mash until completely smooth.
Pour the mashed plantains in the egg and flour mixture and mix all together. Then add in the vegetable oil and stir well.
Grease you baking dish or loaf pan with butter and pour the batter in it.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes to 350 degree F.
Let it cool down before serving. Enjoy!!!!

We have yet to tackle this in our cake decorating classes. We were taught mostly chocolate and truffle cakes.
