1
(heaping) Tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2-3/4 cups Flour
1-1/2 tsp Baking Power
Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Cream Oleo, Sugar, Egg Yolks, add Extracts, grate in Chocolate. Sift in about half of the flour with the Cocoa Powder and the dry spices; grate in Nutmeg. Stir in the Milk. Whip Eggwhites until they're nice and stiff. Then sift the rest of the flour with the Baking Powder into the dough, fold in Eggwhites. Pour into well-greased and floured Bundt Pan. Bake for about an hour (do the knitting needle test). When still warm, dust with Confectioner's Sugar. Or let cool thoroughly and coat with Vanilla or Chocolate Icing. Keep in tightly closed cake preserver to prevent drying.

Notes:

This cake tastes best when left to rest for a couple of days after baking. Instead of Cow's Milk, I use Rice- or Soymilk (if on hand, you can use chocolate or vanilla-flavour).

Prehat oven to 325.  Prepare one large or 2 regular-sized loaf pans (I use glass) by spraying with PAM and flouring.  Combine Bananas, Oleo, Sugar and Eggs in blender, blend on highest setting until foamy -- if your blender container is not large enough, do it in two batches (can also be done with handmixer in a large bowl).  Add vanilla, stir in whole wheat flour and spices, mix white flour with Soda, Baking Powder and Salt, sift into dough and stir well.

Pour into loaf pan and bake for about 1-1/2 hours for one large pan (knitting needle test may tell you it needs another 10-15 mins).  If using 2 regular-sized pans, test after 1 hr.

If using Walnuts
:  Either add them to the mixture in the blender and give them a couple or whirls so they're crushed, or crush them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, then stir in the dough with the whole wheat flour.

If using Raisins, stir them in with the white flour.

NOTE 1:  My large loaf pan is 7 x 12 inches (3 inches high).

NOTE 2:  Freeze Bananas when they get a little over-ripe, defrost before plopping into the blender.

FREEZING LEFTOVER CAKE
APPLE COFFEE CAKE

I had totally forgotten about this recipe until someone gifted me with a basketfull of apples from their tree. Finally found the recipe again in a box full of old (hand-typed!) cards I hadn't looked at in a very long time. Not claiming this as "mine" but I can't for the life or me remember where I found it originally (sometimes back in the 70's, I believe). Just thought I'd share.
This recipe makes a small cake (8-1/2 inch round pan).

Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Stir Lemon Juice into the Milk. Cream Oleo, Sugar, Egg, add Vanilla and the Milk with the Lemon Juice. Sift in the Flour with the Baking Powder and incorporate Raisins. Flatten dough into greased, floured pan and press Apple pieces into dough scored side up. Use as many pieces as you like without the Apples touching. Melt Oleo with Cinnamon and Sugar, pour over the top. Bake for about 45 mins.

To prepare Apples: Peel, core, cut into halves if they're small or quarters for larger Apples. Score the tops of these pieces (criss cross).

Notes:
Instead of Cow's Milk, I use Rice- or Soymilk (if on hand, you can use vanilla-flavour).
