Vegan Chocolate Mocha Banana Cake

 


Vegan Chocolate Mocha Banana Cake; a light, fluffy, moist, soft and eggless chocolate cake with bananas and a hint of coffee for the mocha lovers! With no butter, ghee, milk or yogurt, it is totally vegan! Enjoy a slice with a cup of coffee/tea or with a delectable scoop of your favorite ice cream!!

As you all know by now, I cannot stay away from anything with chocolate for too long!! My fridge is always stocked with bars of chocolate for a sudden chocolaty craving that can hit me anytime of the day or night!

If you ask me my favorite flavor of ice cream, duh!! It is chocolate (check out my easy Mocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream)!!! How about cake?  Well, of course chocolate cake (Heart Shaped Chocolate Bites, Eggless Chocolate Beetroot Cake etc.). Keep a box of chocolate chip cookies (Rich Double Chocolate Chip Cookies or Soft and Fudgy Chocolate Chip Cookies ) in front of me and I will have to hide my weighing scale for the next couple of months!

Now that you know how I love chocolate, let me tell you how I happened to make this scrumptious vegan chocolate cake with a tinge of coffee and healthy bananas in them. Last week, we had guests over and we had stocked a lot of fruits; bananas were one of them.

With lots of family around and dinner parties all over, most of the bananas got left over. Being an avid foodie and passionate blogger, I wanted to put these bad boys to good use before they turn black and over ripe!

I had come across a recipe for a banana chocolate cake from Hershey some time back and now was as good a time as any to try making this cake with bananas in them.

The original recipe had flour or maida in them; I now make all my cakes with whole wheat flour, so whole wheat flour it was. Please do try whole wheat flour in all your cakes; I guarantee you, they will come out soft and fluffy and they are healthy for you too.  Sometimes, adding whole wheat flour makes the batter a bit thick; if so, add more liquid to make a flowing cake batter.

Adding coffee brings out the flavor of chocolate more; I do not know how, but it does. So, I decided to add a bit of instant coffee powder in the cake mix.  

All you have to do is mix the dry ingredients first and then fold in the wet ingredients; pour the batter into a greased and floured pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips or even nuts and bake. After 30 to 40 minutes, the whole house will be wafting with the flavors of chocolate and coffee!

With bananas in them, you will have no difficulty making your kids have their fruit; they would not even notice that these fluffy bites of soft and moist chocolate cake has bananas in them; a good way to sneak some fruit into their diet!

Head over to the kitchen and make these scrumptious, fluffy, moist, mocha flavored eggless and vegan chocolate cake with bananas in them today! The next time you have leftover bananas, no need to rack your brains to think how to finish them off; just make this divine cake and bowl your family over!

    Loved this super easy to make and moist chocolatey cake!! The whole idea of going vegan is great (not too messy in the kitchen) and surprisingly just as tasty!
