Vegan Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

Updated on September 10, 2014

Vegan Chocolate Banana Cake

My little boy loves Chocolate and Bananas so for his third birthday it came as no surprise when he requested a Chocolate Banana Cake for his birthday party. Since my mom was coming and had just recently found that she was allergic to dairy and eggs, I decided to try making a vegan cake so everyone could enjoy the celebration. I am pleased to report that the cake was a grand success and my mom has requested it as her birthday cake for this year too!. If you are looking for a rich chocolate cake that will satisfy your sweet tooth, but is also good for vegans or those with dairy and egg allergies look no further! Serve this cake at your next gathering, then be sure to come back and let us know what you think!

Update:

 So I made this cake for my mom's birthday gathering and it turned out great. My mom took the leftover cake and froze it in individual slices and says she thinks it is even better later. She thinks that the flavors are even more intense that way. Give it a try if you have any cake leftover!

  3. Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10-20 minutes, then transfer the cake from the pan to the serving plate and let it cool completely.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, or frost as desired.

I love this coconut sugar. It has a wonderfully rich flavor. I also us it to sprinkle over my grapefruit for breakfast in the mornings.

I have used other brands of coconut oil, but this is the one I use most. I have it on subscribe and save, so I never risk running out. I love the scent and use it as much in the bathroom as in the kitchen!

This is another item on my subscribe and save list. I can use this in place of all-purpose flour in nearly any recipe. Even my husband doesn't notice a difference!

 

I hope you will let us know how your family likes this cake! Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding my recipe here too!
