Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°c) Oil the loaf pans and arrangue them on a large rimmed baking sheet.
In a spice grinder, pulse the black sesame seeds into a powder. In a medium bowl whisk the ground sesame seeds  with flour,cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Let the cakes cool completely, then turn them onto a platter-


Note: The cakes can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. return to room temperature before serving.

Cakes de plátano (banana) y semillas de sésamo

















Estos cakes se pueden hacer en moldes pequeños como estos o en uno grande normal (alargado).
Tambien quiero agregar que si no encuentran sésamo negro se puede ocupar sólo sesamo blanco.
Los plátanos le dan una humedad muy rica a este cake y mezclado con el chocolate queda super!

Ingredientes

1 /3 taza de aceite vegetal
1/2 taza de semillas de sésamo negras o blancas
1 1/2 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear
1/2 taza de cocoa en polvo sin azúcar
