In the Caring Place community kitchen, Jean made a Banana Loaf Cake and Matrimonial Squares.
Jean also shared with us the benefits of eating bananas. The benefits include healthy bowels, healthy cardiovascular, protection from strokes and ulcers, improve blood pressure and boost of energy.
Bananas are rich source of vitamins B, C and A. Bananas are also low in calories and fat, plus they have a high water content and potassium levels. A diet high in potassium foods and low in sodium-loaded processed foods can help reduce water weight.
The Banana Loaf Cake was moist and very rich in banana flavour.
