Banana Bread *cough* Cake

What should you do if you’re craving something down-home, dense, delicious and pseudo-healthy? Make banana cake — call it banana bread if you’re feeling health-conscious. This is one of the easiest recipes out there: mix and bake. Let’s get to it…

You say cake, I say bread... Either way this stuff is yum-uh-mmy! (and either way the photo's a little fuzzy... Stupid iPhone, that'll teach me not to be lazy and to go get the real camera...)
  • 3 to 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup melted Earth Balance butter
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 1.5 cups flour (you can do half-half unbleached white and whole wheat without trouble)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp egg replacer mixed with 2 tbsp warm water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • chocolate chips, as many as you want (I used about ¾ cup)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mash the bananas in a medium-sized bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour it into the loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean; about 55-60 minutes. Slice and serve. Now see how easy that was?  We didn’t even have time to put on some tunes!

    Recipe Request: it’s the middle of summer, we’re all drowning in fruits and veggies, could you post some veggie heavy summery main courses. What would you like to be served at an omnivorous summer party? Also, is there a decent way to may vegan mayo? The traditional egg yolk is mostly just an emulsifier, so it should be possible.

    Sure thing – I’ve been a busy lil’ vegan of late and haven’t had as much time as I’d like to dwell in the kitchen, but I’ll do my best! As for the mayo, I have to admit that I can’t stand the stuff and never investigated how to veganize it. However, I know it’s possible and is sold commercially under many names, one of them being Vegenaise. I’ll put it on my to-do list though, just for you 🙂
