Hey friends!

I’m currently writing this post in bed under my duvet because it’s freezing! This time of year is when I bake more just because the festive season is fast approaching and who doesn’t like to bake/eat cakes!

I had leftover bananas in my fruit bowl and I’m not a fan of throwing food away, so I thought of using it to make a banana cake! This is such an easy recipe and 100% vegan too!


You will need:Β 

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
  • 3 large black bananas, mashed
  • 75g vegetable or sunflower oil in weight
  • 50g dried fruit, nuts or chocolate chips (optional)

You can add extra ingredients to it like dried fruit, but I added white and milk chocolate chips (I clearly always pick the healthy option!).


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mash the peeled bananas with a fork and then mix it well with oil and sugar.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, combining well.
  4. Add any additional ingredients.
  5. Bake in a greased and lined tin for 20 minutes, before checking. Cover it with foil if the loaf cake is browning. Then bake the cake for another 20-25 minutes (approximately).
  6. Allow the cake to cool a little before slicing.


The cake is delicious when it’s freshly out of the oven but it still has that gooey taste in the morning! The added chocolate chips give it a nice gooey consistency too!

I’d love to hear if you make this cake, so let me know on Twitter or on Instagram so I can see your lovely wintery banana cake! It’s so quick and simple to make and a bonus that it’s vegan too AND you’re not wasting food. Perfect for that sweet tooth and for the environment!
