  • This recipe pairs well with both our Vegan Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream or Vegan Dark Chocolate Ganache!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease two 8 inch cake pans and line with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • Peel the bananas and put them in a large bowl. Mash them up really well until they’re a smooth puree.

  • Add the sugar, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, dairy-free milk, oil and salt to the pureed bananas and whisk well until combined.

  • Sift the flour, baking soda and baking powder to the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Stop as soon as there is no more dry flour visible.

  • Divide the batter between the two cake tins and level with a spatula or back of a spoon.

  • Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. They are ready when you insert a skewer/toothpick into the middle of the cake and it comes out clean.

  • Allow the cakes to cool fully before frosting.
