Banana Poppyseed Cake

This cake is a great treat to serve to all your family and friends. It is a recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver's website. The combination of bananas, poppyseeds, and lemon does not exactly sound like a match made in heaven, but it really works. I baked the cake in a 12" springform pan and it took about 1 hour to bake. You can reduce the baking time depending on what pan you use. Top with a tart lemon icing to add a nice zing and cut through the richness of the cake.

Banana Poppyseed Cake

4 bananas
1 cup soymilk
4 tbsp flaxseeds
3/4 brown sugar
1 tsp vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups WWW flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp baking soda
2 tsps salt
1/2 cup poppyseeds

juice of 1 lemon
enough powdered sugar to make a thin icing

Mash up the bananas then add all the ingredients up to the flour. Mix well until smooth. Sift in all the dry ingredients. Fold all together and then add the poppyseeds. Pour batter in a large springform pan. Bake for about 50 minutes at 350F. When cooled top with lemon icing and serve it up.
