Banana and Chocolate Cake

This cake is a real comfort food, and yet it’s totally healthy! Our Energise Blend adds another level of chocolatey, fruity goodness to a cake that’s already full of it… what more could you want?! It also packs the mixture with health benefits including fighting off fatigue, to help you avoid the post-food coma that a cake this good might usually leave you in!

Ingredients

  • 180g self raising flour (gluten free)
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp LoveRaw’s ‘Energise Food Booster’ powder
  • 50g vegan chocolate (70% solid)
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 130ml water
  • Pinch of salt

For the icing (optional)

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of himalayan salt

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160˚
  • Melt the coconut oil on the hob (preferably over a pan of simmering water to avoid burning)
  • Sieve the dry ingredients into a medium size bowl and mix together
  • In a smaller bowl, mash the bananas and mix together the wet ingredients (including your melted coconut oil)
  • Combine both mixtures and place in a greased baking tin (around 7”) and bake in the preheated oven for around 30-35 minutes. You should be able to stick a knife in the centre of the cake and pull it out dry.
  • Once baked place the cake onto a baking tray and allow to cool.
  • If you’re too impatient to wait (because it will smell so good!) dollop a large scoop of nice-cream on top and dig in!

  • If you want to make the cake look as good as it tastes, mix together your icing, pour it aaaaall over the cake, and garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Enjoy!
