I am not kidding; there is no added sugar in this cake. Just bananas. Plus the cake only needs whole wheat flour.
Even the frosting is sugarless. For the frosting, I made a whipped cream sweetened with fruit. No powdered sugar!
Freeze-dried fruit is a must. Do not substitute for fruit puree. It just won't be the same. Banana and strawberry freeze-dried fruit are great together, especially with the banana cake. I recommend it, you'll still taste the strawberries, but the bananas will add sweetness to the whipped cream.
The cake itself is a "naked" cake, so it's super simple to frost. The heart-shaped cake pan and the strawberry frosting is perfect for Valentine's Day! Make sure to use all the bananas!
Not only is the cake meant to taste like bananas, but it needs sweetness. Now you can feel great about eating cake!
