This recipe comes from Stine, Hubbub's resident vegan baker. A favourite amongst colleagues and friends, Stine shares her secret for a wonderful bake below.
INGREDIENTS (SERVES 7-10)
3 or 4 large brown bananas (the browner the better)
75g vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing the tin
225g plain flour (can use self-raising but just use 2tsp baking powder if so)
50g sugar (white or brown)
2 - 3 tbsp. of maple syrup
3 tsp. baking powder
Splash of oat milk or soya milk (optional, for extra moisture if the batter appears dry)
50g walnuts (optional, you can leave these out or pick any other nut or dried fruit that you prefer)
Vegan chocolate chips (optional)
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Mash 3 large black peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with 75g vegetable or sunflower oil and 100g brown sugar.
Add 225g of plain flour, baking powder and cinnamon and combine well. Add in walnuts and chocolate chips if using.
Bake in greased loaf tin for 25 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning on top.
Bake for another 20 minutes, or until the skewer comes out clean.
Allow time to cool before slicing.
Delicious served hot or cold, with ice cream or without. This treat stays fresh for 3-5 days in a sealed tupperware (if it's not eaten beforehand).
