Here is a luscious cake that's sure to please the whole family... and it's one of my favorite cakes from the Caribbean. And this cake has a low glycemic index, it's gluten-free, and it's sugar-free... what more could a person ask for? Plus the flavor is to die for. And this cake is full of the great nutrition of bananas and the sweet brown-sugar like goodness of mesquite powder. And this cake is super simple to make.

Enjoy this cake!

Ingredients:

2 – Cups of Organic Oatmeal Flour – I usually just make my own oatmeal flour with whole flattened oats that I place in my powerful blender to make flour.

1 – Cup of Organic Mesquite Powder – This sweetener has a super low glycemic index of 28 and a lovely brown sugar like flavor.

2 – Large Ripe Organic Bananas- Mashed

4 - Cups of Large Ripe Organic Bananas - Slice into 1-inch pieces

1/2 - Cup of Rum - No worries... the alcohol will disappear with the heat and only the rum flavor will be left behind... so add a little more rum you like more rum flavor.

1 – Teaspoon of Organic Baking Powder

1 – Teaspoon of Organic Vanilla Extract

1 – Teaspoon of Ground Organic Cinnamon

2 – Teaspoons of Organic White Vinegar

1/2 – Teaspoon of Himalayan Salt

1 1/2 – Cups of Filtered Water

1 – 9x9x3 inch Pyrex or Metal Pan

Take the banana slices them in a 9x9x3 pan. Next, take all the rest of the ingredients and blend them together until smooth and pour the batter over the mangos. spread out the batter and pop the pan into a 375-Degree oven for 60 minutes or until the top of the cake becomes nice and brown... and you start to see the bananas bubbling at the bottom of the pan.

Remove from the oven, let cool and serve... or let cool and place in the frig for a wonderful cold treat (That's the way I love this cake)

Serves 12 people
