Delicious Plantain Cake

Delicious Plantain Cake

If you followed my previous recipe, Tatale – No frying Oil required, you would have noticed that I had a whole box of over ripen plantains for a bargain. So I really had to find creative ways to use these over ripen plantains before they were not good anymore.

So I created the plantain cake recipe off chance and it was just so good. My family who are non-plantain lovers even ate this cake and they loved it. I mean they finished the 2 loaves I made in a day. So I guess it says how delicious this cake was. My dear friend (Medofopa) I really had to share this recipe with you so you and your family can also enjoy.

The recipe was created on the go so be mindful of the measurements and use texture and look to guide you more as I have indicated in the video. I hope you will enjoy this recipe. I would love to hear from you once you try it out.

I have also provided a plantain buttermix recipe here which you can use as a base for this cake.
