How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 300F. Grease a 8inch fluted flan tin with removable base. Take a good sized square of baking paper and moisten. Line base and sides of tin with paper.
  • Put the whole almonds in a food processor until finely ground. Beat eggs and sugar for 10 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Stir ground almonds and baking powder. Puree the bananas with lemon juice then stir through almond mixture with the vanilla.
  • Pour into your tin and sprinkle over sliced almonds to cover the top. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow this to cool in the tin.
  • When ready to serve, dust with icing sugar and pass yoghurt separately.

    Sounds delicious!!! Might even be good with a fluffy, lite cream cheese frosting? Thanks for sharing, definitely going to try this one.

    Made this for a post-christening lunch today. Everyone loved it. So easy, but looks like you might have spent a lot of time baking. only problem was that I already started baking when I realized that I needed to figure out 250g. (don't have a scale). Oops. I think it turned out fine so I must have been close. Will make this again, but for breakfast so I can have it warm with a cup of coffee. Yum!
    Oh, and I made it in a regular spring-form pan as I did not have a fluted flan springform.

    Jules, this looks really pretty and elegant.I like your Blog too.Do I need to make this in that special pan, or can it be made in a cake pan for now just to try it out.
