This recipe calls for a limited amount of sweetener, but it has just the right balance of sweetness from the honey in the black sesame paste, the sugar and the ripe bananas.

Step 1
Put Toasted Black Sesame Seeds (1/3 cup) in a food processor and process until almost all the seeds have been ground into a powder. Add Honey (1/3 cup) to the black sesame powder and continue to process until the mixture turns into a thick paste.
Step 2
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 3
In a bowl, whisk the All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup) , Black Cocoa Powder (1/4 cup) , Baking Powder (3/4 tsp) , Baking Soda (1/2 tsp) , and Salt (1/2 tsp) together until well combined.
Step 4
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the Eggs (2) and Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) until light, add the Black Sesame Paste (1/3 cup) and continue to beat until well combined.
Step 5
Add the Bananas (1 1/2 cups) the bowl of the stand mixer along with the Neutral Oil (1/2 cup) , Non-Dairy Milk (1/4 cup) and Vanilla Extract (1 Tbsp) . Mix until well combined.
Step 6
Add the dry ingredients into the wet in three additions, mixing in between additions - once the batter is just blended together, add in 2 teaspoons of the Toasted Black Sesame Seeds (1/2 Tbsp) and mix to incorporate the seeds into the batter.
Step 7
Lightly grease a 9x5-inch metal baking pan & line it with a sheet of parchment paper. Pour the batter into the baking pan, top with remaining Toasted Black Sesame Seeds (1 tsp) , the sliced banana and then sprinkle the remaining sugar.
Step 8
