I have a parent with a child who has a heart condition. She wants a banana cake for his smash cake. I need something with no sugar. Also I some sort of icing that would have no sugar or less sugar. I thought about a whipped icing.

Anyone have any good recipes with less sugar to no sugar?

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

This was on a vegan website, and I'll bet that you could probably take the sugar out of it and it would be fine. There are so many bananas I can't see that the sugar is going to make a lot of difference, and only 2 Tbsp of it went into the batter to begin with.

(I haven't made this myself, so I can't vouch for it, but it looks okay...)

Banana Cake
Submitted by Jenn

6 ripe bananas
1/2 cup melted vegan margarine
1/2 cup all natural sugar
1 1/2 to 2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp vanilla
dash of cinammon (to taste)
dash of nutmeg (to taste)
***If you like a strong cinnamon/nutmeg flavor, add more.

Peel and mash all bananas. Add melted margarine and mix thoroughly. Add all ingredients except 2 tablespoons of the sugar and all the flour. Once well incorporated, add flour, 1/2 cup at a time until batter reaches a paste like consistency. Pour into a lightly oiled 13x9 inch pan and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until top is golden brown and cake is cooked all the way through.

Comments: Depending on humidity/altitude, you may need more or less flour, which is why it's good to only add 1/2 cup at a time. The 1 1/2 to 2 cups I listed above are just a rough estimate for the climate where I am.
