Desserts & Snacks

Banana cake or bread is probably one of my favourite types of cake. I’ve made a few banana cake variations that I promise to post soon. You really can’t go wrong with a good banana cake. It’s such a crowd-pleaser!

 

Banana cake

Treat yourself or make it the next time you want to impress someone with your baking skills. It’s super easy to make, and you only need a few ingredients! It looks so stunning topped with a sliced banana, but if you only have 4 ripe bananas on hand, leaving it out won’t be the end of the world.

This banana cake is vegan, Dairy-free, Egg-free Gluten-free, dense and moist!
