2 – Large Ripe Organic Bananas – Chopped into chunks and blended with water

(Optional) – As the cake comes out of the oven poke holes in it with a sharp knife and pour on honey or agave nectar and let it soak in for added sweetness.
Take the 3 large bananas that are sliced with peeling attached and add the water and blend until nice and smooth.
Then pour the blended bananas into the flour, mashed bananas, agave nectar of honey, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, vinegar, and the salt. Then mix with a spoon, and if needed add just a little more water to make a thick batter. I usually get in their with my hands and mix everything together.
Then pour the batter into a 9 x 9 inch baking pan and press down a spilt banana into the batter on both sides of the pan. Then pop the pan into a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean or until the top of the bread becomes nice and brown.
Let cool completely and cut into portions and serve.
