Another amazing recipe:) I just forced my Mom to try some plantain bread and she loved it!
I was kind of excited for that ha.
This cake looks absolutely wonderful. Cinnamon is my all time favorite spice, so anything cinnamon flavored is a win.

Another amazing looking purelytwins creation to add to the list of recipes I need to make. I think I need to just dedicate one week to making your recipes and enjoy all the things on the list. This recipe makes me think of the cinnamon sugar toast I used to have as a kid and loved so dearly! I will definitely be trying these. Possibly with the mint chocolate chip ice cream… maybe too strange but how can you go wrong with mint, chocolate and sugary plantains!! It would be awesome if you could show us how to make goat milk kefir 🙂

I can’t wait to end my 21dsd on Saturday so I can make this!! Quick question: do you think I could use blended apple or pumpkin puree instead of banana?

Reply
purelytwins September 6, 2013 - 8:24 am

sure 🙂

Sandra September 6, 2013 - 12:51 am

are both the bananas and plantain are to be black brown and yellow or just black?

thx!

Reply
purelytwins September 6, 2013 - 8:25 am

you can use them both on the ripe side, our plantain was a little green yellow not black.

I signed up for your newsletters at the first of the week, and got a confirmation, but haven’t gotten any. I love your recipes and want them all, so please include me.

Heather @dragonflygirlruns September 6, 2013 - 12:18 pm

Cannot wait to try this, but will have to do this one egg free! Any suggestions for a substitution would be great!

Reply
purelytwins September 6, 2013 - 4:06 pm

Heather you can try flax or chia gel for the egg.

Reply
Heather @dragonflygirlruns September 6, 2013 - 4:59 pm

I normally would but found out that I am intolerant of both chia and flax

Reply
purelytwins September 6, 2013 - 7:23 pm

ya we don’t eat much flax anymore due to hormones, but are able to enjoy chia seeds from time to time.

Amie September 7, 2013 - 7:11 pm
