    Add the pineapple, banana and mix for 4 seconds on speed 4.

    Add the remaineder of the ingredients and mix for 30 seconds on speed 4.

    Mine didn't cook either. I thought to try chia seeds without soaking, they might absorb some moisture. Aside from that cake didn't seem to have much flavour considering there are so many lovely ingredients.

  • My cake was a total disaster.

    My cake was a total disaster. After cooking for one hour it was still very undercooked in the middle. I didn't use the chia seeds as I didn't have any but used two eggs instead. 

    It was completely black on the outside but still raw in the middle. Not sure what went wrong
