Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 6 very ripe bananas , mashed
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts , toasted lightly, then chopped

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, wheat germ, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  • In another, larger bowl, whisk together the sugar, maple syrup, almond milk, mashed bananas and vanilla extract until well-mixed.
  • Add the flour in three batches, stirring in the flour thoroughly after each addition.
  • Pour into a bundt pan sprayed with oil (I just bought a
  • silicone bundt pan
  • which requires little to no oil, and the cake pops out beautifully without sticking). This is a thick batter, so smooth down the top before putting into the oven.
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the cake's center comes out clean.
  • Cool thoroughly, unmold, dust with some confectioner's sugar if you like, then slice. Serve with some vegan whipped cream for some extra oomph, or just plain-- it's delicious either way.
