June 21, 2016
"THIS IS A PORTUGUESE RECIPE FOR USING UP YOUR OVER-RIPE BANANAS FOR A GREAT BREAKFAST TREAT OR A DESSERT. I FOUND THIS ON "TIA MARIA'S BLOG" AND HERE IS THE LINK - portuguesedinerdotcom/tiamaria/banana-cake-cinniman-sugar SHE REPORTS THAT THIS RECIPE IS FROM A FAN (NAMED MARY) FROM HER BLOG, THAT SHARED HER OWN PORTUGUESE RECIPE FOR THIS TREAT. SHE HAD IT POSTED IN BOTH SPANISH AND ENGLISH, BUT I AM JUST POSTING THE ENGLISH VERSION. NOTE: I MADE THIS RECIPE AS ORIGINALLY POSTED BY THE ABOVE, BUT NOW HAVE MADE SOME SLIGHT CHANGES (MASHING THE BANANAS AND COMBINING THE FLOUR, BAKING POWDER AND A DASH OF SEA SALT IN A BAG) BASED ON THE OUTCOME."

Beat the egg yolks, orange juice, sugar, mashed bananas and the oil in a blender or kitchenaid mixer.
Place the egg and sugar mixture into a large bowl and add the flour a little at a time mixing well.
Add the baking powder and mix well. (I mixed the baking powder with the flour in a plastic bag, and did add a large pinch of sea salt)
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks.
Gently fold the egg whites into the batter until mixed.
Pour the batter into a greased and lightly floured bundt pan.
Make a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the banana cake.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees F. for approximately 45 minutes until golden.
Let cool slightly and remove cake. Then serve and enjoy!!
