..I’m obsessed with this Banana and Chocolate Marble Plum Cake!..
Hey guys, hope you’re doing great!
Here the weather is finally lovely: no longer too hot or sweaty, just pleasently cool breezy, hence why I was feeling like baking.
At first I wanted to make something with a couple of very ripe bananas that were staring at me in the last couple of days, but on second thoughts I was going for a classic marble cake… Until I had the thought how gorgeous would be mixing these two things together? I should definitly try! Then I start thinking, with the cool breeze gently caressing my face, that I also fancied the taste of some wintery warm and cosy spices, especially cinnamon. So I went like: Yeah, I should definitely add a pinch of cinnamon as well! …And here is how I gave birth to this cake: full of taste, rich and comforting.
Hope you guys will like it as much as we have 🙂
Banana and Chocolate Marble Plum Cake Recipe
Ingredients (for a 500 ml bread tin):
2 Bananas (very ripe)
50 gr Brown Sugar
50 gr Caster Sugar
170 gr Gluten Free Flour Mix (or All Purpose Flour)
70 gr Sunflower Oil
80 gr Plant Based Milk (Rice)
8 gr Baking Powder
2 tsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Plant Based Yogurt (or extra Milk)
1/2 Vanilla Pod (or 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract)
1 pinch Salt
Preheat the oven to 180° C.
Mash 1 banana with a fork and a table spoon of plant based yogurt, until smooth.
In a blender put all of the ingredients except for the cocoa powder.
Blend for 1 minute until smooth and creamy.
At the bottom of the tray place some baking paper (or just use some oil to coat all sides) and pour half of the mixture.
Add the cocoa powder to the remaining half and blend again until combined.
Pour the cocoa mixture on the white one and make some swirls with a fork in order to create the marble effect.
Cut the other banana in 2 lenghtwise and place the two halves on the top of the cake.
Bake for 30-45 minutes until after piercing the cake with a skewer it cames out dry.
Enjoy with a sprinkle of icing sugar on top 🙂
