Baking with Canderel | AD

I recently worked with Canderel who teamed up with the FareShare Community Food Network on a very worthwhile project to produce a recipe that uses leftover ingredients people often have at home. Baking with Canderel is surprisingly easy and I thought this cake tasted delicious, especially with a lovely cup of tea or coffee.

Figuring out what we always have leftover in our home was simple; bananas! And all good bakers know that the riper a banana is, the better a bake it makes. I always have bananas, and even at the end of their shelflife, they bake beautifully. With a healthy twist and a super simple recipe to follow, this sugar and dairy-free Banana and Walnut cake tastes delicious.

Baking with Canderel

Banana & Walnut Cake

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 2 Bananas
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 100 ml Vegetable oil
  • 15 g Canderel Sweetener
  • 180 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 60 g chopped walnuts


  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 180°C.
  2. Line and prepare your loaf tin with two strips of grease-proof paper so no oil or butter is needed to grease the tin. 
  3. Peel the bananas and throw in your bowl and turn the mixer on low (If you’re just mixing by hand mash them up)
  4. Add your eggs and oil slowly mixing until all combined
  5. Now add all your dry ingredients mixing slowly until just combined. Add in your walnuts, saving a few to sprinkle on top, and fold in the mixture carefully.
  6. Pour the mixture into your lined loaf tin and lay the remaining walnuts on top
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. Test before removing as it’s possible it may need another 5-10 minutes (all ovens vary). If you are unsure insert a skewer into the cake making sure it comes out clean.
  8. Set aside and leave to cool for around 15-20 minutes. You’ll then be able to lift out using the edges of the greaseproof paper and peel off. 
  9. Leave to cool a little more, 20 minutes maybe. Enjoy!

      It makes a lovely savoury change. I have another recipe where I use chocolate, but this one is a little less calorific! Thank you x

    The finished product looks and sounds like it was delicious. I love the fact that it uses a sweetener too. It thought the texture wouldn’t quite be the same as on with sugar. But it looks great. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll check out the ebook and get experimenting one day.
