Banana cake [V]

Probably one of the staples in every vegan’s baking repertoire, as banana is considered an egg replacement in baking. I still use chia paste (recipe here), as I used this low baked banana bread for mini cakes for a high tea spread. Without chia seeds, the bake is more crumbly. If you don’t mind that, feel free to omit it.
The first time I made this, the cake hadn’t risen, and I was left with a big rubber slab. Luckily, the second attempt was much better.


  • 2 tbs chia paste
  • 2 ripe large bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
