- 3 medium bananas
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup toasted or raw wheat germ
- 1/2 cup blueberry preserves (see note)
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat the oven to 375º F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan with unbleached parchment paper.
- Put the bananas and maple syrup in a large bowl and mash into a chunky purée using a potato masher or large fork. Add the oats, raisins and wheat germ; stir thoroughly to combine.
- Spread half of the oat mixture in an even layer in the prepared pan. Spread the blueberry preserves in an even layer over the oat mixture.
- Sprinkle the chopped walnuts evenly over the preserves.
- Spread the remaining oat mixture in an even layer over the walnuts and preserves. Bake for 30 to 32 minutes, until slightly golden.
- Put the pan on a wire rack and loosen the sides of the cake with a knife. Let cool 15 to 20 minutes (see note). After cooling the cake, invert it onto a wire rack and gently peel off the parchment paper. Carefully flip the cake, topside up, onto a decorative platter for serving.
- Cut into 6 wedges to serve.
You may use apricot, blueberry or strawberry preserves in place of the raspberry variety.
After cooling the cake, invert it onto a wire rack and gently peel off the parchment paper. Carefully flip the cake, topside up, onto a decorative platter for serving.
