Whisk vigorously then add the flour, baking powder and a touch of salt. Mix again and put your preparation in a mold. Cook for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 180 ° C.

Our favorite cake recipe without fat and sugar
You can make an even healthier cake, by removing the sugar and replacing it with a substitute such as:
- honey which, in addition to the more fruity taste, brings texture to the preparations;
- maple syrup which gives a caramelized taste to your cakes;
- agave syrup which is a natural sweetener and suitable for vegans.
But you can even do without these substitutes if you cook a fruit cake, like banana bread. This fat-free, sugar-free banana cake is undoubtedly one of our favorite recipes (it’s healthy, super-fast and delicious)! Just mash three ripe bananas and mix them with two eggs.
