Blueberry Banana Swirl Cake

I’m all about simple recipes that dial up the impress factor, and using a swirl is the perfect way to do that! It looks fancy, despite requiring very little effort. This moist Blueberry Banana Swirl Cake is the perfect fruity addition to your afternoon tea table.

While I love fruit, most banana cakes are loaded with too much sugar for my tastes – they often contain large amounts of added sugar on top of the bananas. Really bananas are sweet enough as is!

This recipe uses only two bananas, so the final serve is actually very low in sugar, despite bananas being a fruit with more sugar than most. I’ve also added my signature 1 ingredient blueberry jam. Which just like the cakes, uses the natural sweetness of fruit with no need for added sugar!

Nature always knows best!

METHOD
  1. To prepare the blueberry jam, place blueberries in a pot with a dash of water. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil, then let simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes. You can use a fork to help mash up some of the berries.

  4. In a large bowl, mash the bananas then stir in the eggs and coconut oil. Gently fold in the dry ingredients until combined.
  5. Spoon into the lined tin. Dollop on the blueberry jam and swirl it in using a knife. Bake for 35–40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out and letting cool on a wire rack.
