Birdbath Bakery Hack?

HELP! Trying to recreate vegan treat from Birdbath Bakery, NYC

Anyone have any ideas on how to recreate Birdbath's vegan banana-sesame-agave cake? I had it the other day and it was so good. Crunchy texture on the outside from a coating of sesame seeds and nice and moist on the inside with the banana. A nice sesame/banana flavor throughout. I was thinking this would make a great breakfast food.

Here is a link to a picture of the original: http://nymag.com/bestofny/food/2008/v...

Any ideas would be appreciated! I got some bananas at home.

  1. I don't know the recipe and can't even begin to think what might go in it, although the texture reminds me a lot of the Metropolitan Bakery's (in Philly) Millet Muffin. The Birdbath one is awesome and i hope someone can find us a recipe! I used to have the millet muffin recipe and will look for it, because maybe it can be vegan-ized and might work!

      Ok, I found a link to one: http://www.slashfood.com/2008/08/01/m...

      They're pretty high in eggs and butter, but if you know how to veganize, it might be doable. I guess why I'm pushing these as a possible way to figure out the banana-sesame-agave is that I've had both muffins and the textures are practically identical! The sesame could take the place of the millet so easily!

        I found this recipe (http://glutenfreebay.blogspot.com/200...) and think it could be similar... I just don't know how they got the awesome sesame crust on the original!
