Description

This Healthy Smash Cake has no added sugar! It’s sweetened with bananas and has a base of almond and oat flour. This smash cake is baby and mom approved!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Cake:

½ cup smashed ripe bananas (about 1 medium banana)

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

⅛ teaspoon salt

1 cup almond flour

½ cup oat flour*

For the Frosting:

¼ cup Freeze dried strawberries (makes about 1 TB powder)

1 cup cold heavy whipping cream


Instructions

For the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spritz 3 4-inch cake pans with nonstick cooking spray of choice. 
  2. In a blender, combine the ripe bananas, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Process until combined.
  3. Next add the almond and oat flour to the blender. Blend and scrape down the sides as necessary.
  4. Pour the batter evenly into the 3 prepared pans and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Allow the cakes to cook for about 15 minutes before removing from the pan. And cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting:

  1. While the cake is baking, grind the freeze dried strawberries into a powder by blending in a food processor. 
  2. To make the heavy whipping cream into whipped cream, blend the cold whipping cream with 1 tablespoon of the strawberry powder in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer until the mixture forms soft peaks. Don’t blend too long, otherwise you will turn the cream into butter! This takes about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Frost the cake with the strawberry whipped cream and top with desired toppings.

Notes

*To make a 1/2 cup of oat flour, grind a 1/2 cup of oats until they form a flour like consistency in a food processor.

You can make the cake a day in advance.

Because whipped cream needs to be refrigerated, I recommend frosting it as close to the serving time as possible.
