Chocolate & Banana Cake (Vegan & Gluten-free)

Hello my flowers!

This weekend has been busy, sun was there so I went by bike to try another vegan bakery in the big city, called Ms Cupcake: I highly recommend their brownies and salted caramel milkshake!!

I also took the time to bake a little something, as I was invited for lunch on Sunday. I had some bananas, perfectly ripped and awaiting to be eaten or cooked: I felt inspired and decided to have a go with a banana cake, adding some cheeky chocolate (you must have understood by now my love for all thing chocolate 🙂 ). The result is a soft, moist and succulent treat, perfect for to bring to the first picnic of the year. Since I started to bake vegan, I am amazed by how many possibilities I have where many people think I am limited, I have not given up my sweet tooth and I am baking even more than before.

So here we go: chocolate & banana cake, egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free (vegan).
