Food from The Lodge

By no means am I a vegan. But, while working in France with a professional chef, I discovered that a range of well-made vegan food is just as good, if not better, than the dairy-filled versions! Plus, they can please a wider range of guests or friends.

My time at the Surf Lodge gave me experience and heaps of practice, assisting Chef with making these recipes everyday for hungry surfers and guests with all kinds of dietary requirements. So I'd like to share some of what I learnt!

Vegan Banana Bread Goodness

Vegan Banana Bread is a filling treat, full of energy, and not too much sugar; perfect for those who love energetic stuff like surfing! Whenever we served this at the Surf Lodge the tray was empty within minutes.

Cooking Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: 1 large baking tin - serves small party

All You Will Need...

  • 5 Ripe Bananas
  • 325g Plain Flour
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 90 ml Water
  • 50g Chopped apricots/nuts, (Optional)


  1. Grease a large baking tin, and preheat the oven to 200°c.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add all ingredients, EXCEPT the water, and mix together with your hands until it forms a dough. (Note: the baking powder is key to the bread's fluffiness. It's better to have a little too much than not enough, as the bread won't cook properly if there is not enough.)
  4. Add the water and mix until creamy.
  5. Pour the mixture into the baking tin and cook for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Leave to cool slightly before cutting, and serve either warm or cold. Easy!

Serving Suggestions

This delicious treat can be served as a dessert or a tea-time bite. It goes great with a drizzling of dark chocolate, or custard for the non-vegans. You could also slice it and serve with butter or margarine.

The best thing is, it lasts for a few days, and is as yummy cold as it is warm, so no need to try and scoff the whole tray in one day! ...Although sometimes that can't be helped.
