Default Banana Cakes (2)

I found these two while looking for a reader request. They sound too good not to share!

Banana Spice Cake
1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened at room temperature
1 1/4 cups Splenda
5 eggs at room temperature
2 cups Almond Flour (You can buy almond flour here)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teasppons banana extract*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream butter and splenda well.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.

Mix almond flour with baking powder and spices.

Add egg mixture and beat well. Add banana and vanilla extracts.

Pour into greased 9X10" or 9X13" pan.

Cook at 350 degrees until golden brown on top - approx. 30 minutes.

Makes approximately 8 servings. 6.2 carbs. per serving.

*Note: you can change the banana extract to any other flavor for a change. Great with fresh cut strawberries and whipped heavy whipping cream on top.

This recipe was taken from Eat Almonds.com.
