Steps for preparing light banana cake

Start by preheating your oven to 170°C. Then, in a salad bowl, mash the 3 bananas using a fork. Add the whole eggs, milk and water and mix well. Incorporate the flour, wheat bran, almond or hazelnut powder and half a sachet of yeast. Mix well to obtain a homogeneous and smooth texture then add the agave syrup and melted butter.

Break the chocolate into chips and add them to the previous preparation. Transfer to a previously buttered cake mold then decorate the top with a few slices of banana. All you have to do is bake the cake for around 45 minutes to 1 hour at 160°C, and enjoy your meal!
