Vegan chocolate cake

Hi everyone 

Chocolate cake, need I saw more, it’s one of the things I’ve been missing since I went vegan. I find a lot of vegan sweets, puddings, chocolate a bit savory and really missing the googy deliciousness of a none vegan pudding. So last week I found myself with a massive bunch of ripe (just about to be over ripe) bananas and there really was only one thing to do with them – make a cake.


 Here are the ingredients you will need:

2 ripe bananas

1 cup of flour

1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder

Half a teaspoon of baking soda

Pinch of salt

Half a bar of Bournville chocolate (or any vegan chocolate)

Half a cup of vegetable oil and half a cup of soya/almond/rice milk (whatever your non dairy milk of choice is)

 Here is how I made it:
I mixed all the dry ingredients together, add the wet ingredients and then whisked till smooth – very simple.
You can then choose to put into a baking tin or into cup cake paper cups which ever you prefer and then bake in the oven at 220 degrees celcious for about 20 minutes. You can test it is done by placing a knife in the middle and if you pull the knife out and it has not got cake mixture on it then you know it’s done.

For the topping I melt a bar of Bourneville chocolate or again you vegan chocolate of choice and pour over the cake once it has cooled. 

You can then add in fruit, nuts, different vegan chocolate or any other vegan topping you wish and then the most important bit – eat a huge slice or 2.

If you are really going for googy you could get a soya based custard or cream to go on top, I love Alpro soya custard it’s tastes so good.

Thanks you for reading and enjoy
