This is what you need
Makes 10-12 squares
1 square is about 170 cal.
100 gr (7 tbsp) butter or margarine
1 dl (6-7 tbsp) brown sugar
1 1/2 dl (10 tbsp) flour
3/4 dl (5 tbsp) semolina groats
1 ts baking powder
1 1/2 dl (10 tbsp) grated coconut
This is what you do
Prick the bananas with a toothpick and warm them in your microwave on full power for about 2 minutes. Let them cool off for a few minutes, then peel them and cut them into slices.
Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, full power for 1-2 minutes.
Beat the eggs with the sugar, blend the flour, semolina groats, baking powder and the grated coconut together, then combine the dry ingredients with the eggs. Add the banana-slices at the end, mash them if you want, but that is not necessary.
Pour the batter into a greased (use the melted butter) microwave safe oval bowl. Bake the cake in two steps. First, half power for 8 minutes, and then on full power for about 4 minutes. Leave it to cool off a bit before you cut it into squares and enjoy your Banan Cake with a nice cup of coffee or tea.
Note: As a variation, add 1 tsp of cinnamon or any other favorite spice of yours .
