  2. Hi there! I loved the recipe, so simple! Just one question: for the “plantain based that’s egg-free” version we just remove the egg, no need for water? (there’s water in the tiger-nut version without eggs, that’s why it called my attention). I will make with egg anyway 😉

    Posted on September 17, 2016 at 11:58 am
    1. correct, for the plantain egg-free version you don’t need water because the plantain provides the liquid. 🙂

  3. Looks delish😋❤! Is the plantain raw when blended with the rest of ingredients? Or is it boiled or steamed? Could I sub it for canned pumpkin or sweet potato?

    Posted on September 20, 2016 at 4:46 pm
    1. Yes the plantain is raw when blended. You can try a sweet potato it make the cake a bit more dense. You can also try a green banana.

  4. Is the plantain green or yellow?

    Posted on March 12, 2017 at 1:30 pm
    1. Both would work. The yellow more ripe plantain would make it sweeter and possibly a little more moist.
