Banana Almond Cake

banana cake

I developed a tasty almond cake that has since become a base for many other cake variations over the years I have been low carbing.  This is the Banana variation I came up with several years back.  This one is REALLY good! Very close indeed to my decades old recipe for Banana Nut Bread.  The lecithin is not essential and can be omitted.  I used it back them as a texture enhancer.  It’s available at most health food stores and various places on-line.  This recipe is not suitable for Atkins Induction.
