Vegan, gluten-free, sugar free and very delicious!
Firstly, I would like to wish everyone a very happy new year. Here in the UK the skies are decidedly grey and the air is damp and chill. And everyone’s got the January blues. No better reasons are needed to make a cake. A wholesome comforting moreish sort of cake.
There were a few over ripe bananas sitting forlornly in the fruit bowl, so I thought: this is the moment to make a cake that’s good for breakfast.
Cake for breakfast: way to go 🙂 💕
It’s not too sweet, it’s very moist, it’s full of good things, and is fab. just plain with coffee, or vegan-buttered…or if you want to go sweeter then you can’t go wrong with oodles of strawberry jam.
For sweetener I’ve used a new ingredient (for me) : coconut sugar. It’s not as sweet as sugar and it has a flavour to it that’s slightly musty. For that reason, I wouldn’t use it as my absolute go-to sweetener, but in this cake it blends very well with the spices and the banana. It’s now available in some UK supermarkets, which is why I’ve included it today.
I’ve also included another ingredient that makes gluten-free cooking easier: self-raising gluten-free flour. Again, it’s available in some supermarkets and it certainly helped to give this loaf a nice rise.
