We featured another sugar free cake with no butter on TV this week and the result was a Hummingbird with strawberries instead of pineapple.

You will need to mix together in a large bowl:

350g sifted self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Tip of a teaspoon vanilla powder or a couple of drops of vanila extract
50g pecans, chopped
1 teaspoon cornflour
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
50g coconut

In another bowl, mix together theae ingredients then use a handheld blender to liquidze them until the mixture has a smooth consistency:

125 ml olive oil
125 ml yoghurt
200g golden raisins
3 ripe bananas
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vinegar
250g strawberries

In a third bowl beat together unti, they form a firm meringue consistency:

4 egg whites
Half a teaspoon cream of tartar

Use a metal spoon to fold in the dry ingredients into the liquids. do not ocermix. Gently fild in the egg whites. m
Pour the batter into a prepapred tin (23cm) and bake at 170 C for 35 minutes. Decorate with strawberries and i also used dried rose petals on the surface.

Happy peaceful Easter dear readers. We are still experiencing colder than usual weather here in the Mediterranean and I so much yearn for the summer to come in full swing soon.
