Banana and Mango Cake

I’ve used self-raising flour in this recipe which I don’t normally use on No Count, but it’s worth it to be able to enjoy a piece of this cake with an afternoon cup of tea:-)  There’s a lovely combination of flavours and it’s definitely worth the 2sp a slice on No Count or just 3sp if following WW Flex.  It’s great with or without the topping!

  

Ingredients (serves 8):

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 100g oats
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 60g Flora light
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 flat tbsp Sukrin gold
  • 2 tbsp skimmed milk
  • a small mango, cut into pieces

Topping:

  • 250ml 0% Total yogurt
  • 4g of a sachet of sugar-free jelly (you may want to use more or less, depending upon taste, but this helps to thicken the yogurt a bit)
  • 16g chopped walnuts (2g per person is 0sp)

Method:

  1. Mash the bananas and mix in the 3 eggs, skimmed milk and Flora (melted).  Set to one side.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the oats, flour, Sukrin gold and mixed spice.
  3. Pour the banana mixture into this bowl and stir together.
  4. Add the mango and mix it in.
  5. Put in a cake tin (I use a silicone one) and bake on 170C for about 40 mins.  Check if it is cooked all the way through using a skewer.
  6. Leave the cake to cool.
  7. To make the topping, mix the yogurt and sugar-free jelly together.
  8. Spread over the cake and sprinkle the walnuts on top.
  9. Enjoy!

(The cake would be the same amount of points with or without the topping. It can be kept in the fridge for about 3 days.)

    1. Hi and thank you Melanie, if you read my blog at http://www.lovingnocount.com it explains that No Count is not going to be offered to new members any more and only members currently doing No Count will continue to be supported with it. That’s why your coach has said to stay with Flex. If you want to find out what No Count is, have a look at the No Count Explained page: it’s all on there. I hope this helps, Helen xxxxx

    1. Hi Ann, yes it’s an 8 inch cake tin. It’s great to hear that you’re going to have a go at baking and I hope you enjoy this one:-) Good luck, and I love to hear how you get on, Helen xxxxx

    1. Hi Helen, it’s a brown sugar replacement that can be used for baking – similar to Splenda and Truvia but I find it tastes better. I managed to find some in Holland and Barrett but you could replace it with a 0sp sweetener if you wished. Hope you enjoy this if you bake it:-) Helen xxxx

        1. Thanks Helen:-) I might not be so quick after today – back at work after the long summer hols:-) Enjoy your week, Helen xxxx

  2. Hi Helen, would you be able to add the calories per recipe? I have recently left weight watchers and am using the lose it app which is incredibly user friendly , much better than the ww app, but of course it counts calories. It would be great if you could. Love your recipes. Thanks
