Roquefort Walnut Banana Cake

© 2020 |

© 2020 |

Pair Roquefort with banana in a cake? Yes, the combination works surprisingly well and tastes so good. The blue cheese adds just right amount of depth and robust flavor to the banana bread which is moist, soft and so delicious. Once cooled, the cake is then topped with a simple thin glaze and walnuts for a perfect dessert your family will love.
Roquefort is a blue mold cheese made from sheep milk from France. If it's too intense for you, then use the Gorgonzola mild, Cambozola Black or Danish Blue instead.

CakeGlaze and Topping, optional
  • 180 g Refined spelt flour (Dinkel #550)
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Large pinch of salt
  • 100 g Butter, melted
  • 150 g Erythritol (or white sugar)
  • 50 g Coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 100 g Roquefort, crumbled
  • 80 g Toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 Very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 100 g Icing sugar, sifted
  • 2-3 tsp Cream or whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 30 g Toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced/350F. Grease a 20cm x 10cm x7cm loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper. Set aside. Whisk together spelt flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine together the melted butter, erythritol and coconut sugar. Add in eggs, vanilla and lemon juice. Mix well.
  3. Stir flour mixture into the butter mixture until smooth. Fold in the crumbled Roquefort, walnuts and bananas. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface.
  4. Bake in the middle of the hot oven for 50 minutes, cover the cake with a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Remove and cool the cake in the pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Whisk icing sugar, cream and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Stand for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Using a spatua or spoon, spread icing over top of cake. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts over. Set aside for 30 minutes to set. Slice and enjoy! | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Roquefort is one of those cheeses that I love but hardly buy because, other than salads, I just don't know of many other way to use it. Putting it in banana bread in genius!!!

This reminds me of a frosty Christmas. The icing looks like snow on the cake.

This sounds terrific! I've paired Roquefort and walnuts with pears, but don't think I've ever tried that combo with bananas. Sounds excellent! Nice fall flavors. Thanks!

Julie 7/9/20 16:11

I have baked walnut and banana in cakes but adding blue cheese is something new to me, looks delicious !!

Hasin 7/9/20 16:19

What a lovely looking cake Angie, loved that glazing and the perfect drip!
Banana Bread has to be the 2020 cake of the decade really. We have all mastered this Banana bread and cake with so many variations and now your walnut is another graceful addition to the lust. Thanks

I love having a nutty, sweet bread with blue cheese. So, I know I'd like the cheese in the bread too! What a great idea.

The icing is really beautiful, coupled with the drips on the sides. This cake looks really romantic and festive.

I think I need to try this cake. Who’d have thought of adding blue cheese but you? But I can totally see it would work.
