This weeks ingredients are bananas and coffee.
Thus the ugliest cake in the world was born...people - I give you the Coffee Banoffee Cake.
This is a basic sponge with 4 teaspoons of strong coffee and muscavado sugar added.
I would have decorated this cake with a buttercream topping but I had no icing sugar and
couldn't be bothered to nip to the shop I made an agreement to myself that I would participate in the Iron Chef Challenge ONLY if I had the ingredients in the house already. I would not participate if I had to buy something in. Whilst that is true, I would have bought icing sugar because it gets used A LOT round here but well.......I really couldn't be arsed to go to the shops.
The banana cream topping didn't go quite as planned, though it tastes fricking AWESOME it is not very pleasing to the eye. I think lemon juice was needed to prevent the bananas from going brown. The addition of a teaspoon of turmeric sent it a day glo green colour.
So it got covered in smashed up muesli to lessen the eyeball attack.
I will make this again for sure, but it needs a few tweaks so therefore I ain't posting the recipe.
here's a pretty picture to make up for the optical onslaught of the previous picture and to prove that there is nothing wrong with your monitor OR your eyesight.
