Banana Orange Cardamom Crinkle Cakes. Incredibly flavourful little cakes with fragrant citrus and spice. Great for lunchboxes and coffee breaks.
We are definitely on a mission around here! That mission? To make sure no over ripe, brown speckled bananas ever get thrown in your trash.
And we are very committed to that mission! From Banoffee Pie to Banana Bread Cookies, we have added a LOT of banana recipes over the past 11 years. In fact a quick search of the site shows a total of 33 recipes that use bananas.
For sure there will be more in the future. Why do we always over buy bananas anyway?
Oh well, with great treats like this one to use them up, that just may be a blessing in disguise.
These great little lunchbox treats are just as easily made as muffins if you do not have the mini loaf pans. I love the exotic flavour of cardamom but if you are not a fan, just substitute cinnamon or allspice for an equally delicious alternative.

- Muffin sized cakes will take only about 15 to 20 minutes. Watch them carefully so they don't over bake.
- Makes 12 to 18 depending on size of pans or if using muffin tins.
Sometimes I sprinkle top tops of the crinkle cakes with turbinado sugar before baking as pictured.
