I have a question about the recipe "Black Sesame Banana Cake with Peanut Butter" from Sarah Jampel. What happens if I leave out some of the sesame seeds? Could I sub tahini for the portion of sesame seeds that will be ground? I have black sesame, only not enough.

Yes, I often sub tahini & sesame seed for one another. But/ and remember the fat on the thaini. I''ve not seen the recipe. Shouldn't be a problem for 2-3 tbsp seeds. More than that ans you might want to reduce fat in recipe by 1 tbsp.

You could always substitute white sesame seeds for black ones!
