plantain cake Recipe

  Caribbean Cakes

3 really ripe plantain
1-2 green chillies
1 inch root ginger
1 medium onion
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

finely chop the chillies, ginger and onion (or use processor). mash the plantain with a fork and mix with the aromatics, flour and baking powder. place in a small, oiled cake tin and bake at about 180 degrees centigrade for 30 minutes or until set and golden.
although you wouldnt guess it from the ingredients this tastes just like a normal sweet cake with a really gingery kick - and compared to a normal cake its really healthy!
