Do you look at your gorgeous bananas and think – any day now, they’ll be ready any day now! And then you forget to eat them and you’re in the too-ripe-to-eat category JUST LIKE THAT. Boom. Bananas gone. Well, now you don’t have to worry, make a cake using this vegan gluten free chocolate banana cake recipe!

I don’t like to make icing – because I eat it all by myself straight from the bowl – so I just used icing sugar on this. You can make  a simple icing with vegan margarine, icing sugar and vanilla and make sure you top the cake when it’s completely cool.

A delicious way to use ripe bananas.
  • 6 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • ½ cup oil or vegan margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup fine rice flour
  • 1 cup cacao
  • 2 tsp psyllium husk
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot (tapioca) flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • If you find the mixture is too think then add ½ cup soy milk or water
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar (add this last)
  1. Preheat oven to 180 and prepare a baking tin – I used a lamington tin. Either grease or line with baking paper, whichever you prefer is fine.
  2. Peel bananas and add them to a large mixing bowl. Mix with the mixer until you get a gooey consistency.
  3. Add sugar, margarine, vanilla and mix.
  4. Now add all dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Once everything is beautifully mixed add the vinegar and stir QUICKLY with a spoon or mixer.
  6. Add the mix into the tin immediately and pop in the oven.
  7. Bake on 180 for 35-40 minutes.
