Black sesame chocolate banana loaf cakes (Cakes de chocolate y sesamo negro)









I know  many  of you are in Winter season and that's fine. 
But let me tell you that here we have a terrible summer with very high temperatures (and coming from years of drought) the other day I read that we are just from the countries most affected by the climate change that has caused by all of  us who should take care of our planet.
We dont have other.
 It is a fact that the Antartic poles that have the largest water reserves have decreased.
That's why I'm worried about the extreme heat.
Today we have 38,3 °C   (100,94°  F) 
Im waiting by my autumn!

Moving to another point I always cook or bake at any time or season because is my core, my life motiv!

So I made these cakes of chocolate and black sesame that had the recipe saved a long time ago.
Absolutely delicious. They can be made in small loafs or in a long one.
BTW black sesame is really healthy you can read here about it.
Here the twins and hubby  liked them a lot.
Well I send hugs and take care.

Gloria

Ingredients

1/2 cup canola oil
plus more for greasing
1/2 cup black sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas  (about 4 bananas)
1/3 cup greek yogurt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar or organic brown sugar
1/4 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

Method

Preheat oven to 180°c (350°F) and oil 4 loaf pans and arrange them on a large rimmed baking sheet.
 In a spice grinder or blender pulse the sesame seeds into a powder.
In a medium bol whisk the ground sesame seeds with the flour, cocoa power, baking soda and salt.

In a food processor combine the bananas  with the greek yogurt and lemon juice and puree until smooth. 
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until pale. Beat in the banana mixture, almond milk (or milk) and vanilla. Beat in the dry ingredients in 3 additions until uniform in color.
Do not overbeat.

Scrape the batter into the 4 prepared pans and smooth the tops. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar and black sesame seeds on top.

Bakes the cakes for 40 to 45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of each loaf  comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
Let the cakes cool completely, then turn out onto a platter.

  6. I like the combination of banana and chocolate and your cake looks delicious, I'd love to give it a try. It was also interesting to read about black sesame, I've always thought that it is very pretty to use but did not know that it was healthy as well. Thanks for sharing, dear Gloria, it is always wonderful to visit you.

  21. What a nice mix of ingredients! Sounds terrific.

    Too bad almost everyone believes in climate change now, except for jerks like Donald Trump, who refuses to believe in it, no matter what anyone says. He's like one of those two-year-olds who thinks that if he closes his eyes, people can't see him.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks David. Oh I know what you mean but really Trump is not the better person to talk about climate change lol
    We had here a International Forum 2 weeks ago and was really interesting heard about it. People about all countries are really worry because maybe is too late for our planet. I hope is not late.
    One example cacao plants is really in danger maybe in more years there are not cacao!!
    Really sad.
    You know David I read a lot ! hugs

  25. Mercy, Gloria! Wish you could send some of that heat here! Here in Chicago area, we're in the deep freeze, -1°F now and going down to -22°F tonight, very windy and lots of snow on ground but it's sunny right now! Your cake looks delicious and I love the black sesame seed addition, sounds great with banana and chocolate. Glad you like to bake when it's hot, you always have something really good! Thanks and take care and wish I could ship the snow and cold weather your way!

  32. So interesting chocolate and black sesame...now that I get to think...the combination of the fragrant sesame and chocolate must be divine...thanks for sharing the recipe Gloria. Have a great rest of the week!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Dearest Gloria, oh I am so sorry you are suffering so much in the extreme heat! It must be almost unbearable. We have the opposite problem here...it is so cold, and we have snow and heavy frost's.
    If only we could swap a little of what we each have...and both have in-between temperatures. That would be so nice!*smiles*

    I love the sound of your fabulous recipe, Gloria...and as it is a chocolate one, I can't wait to try it!
    Thank you so much for sharing!😊😊

    Lots of love and hugs ❤❤❤
