It's 2012! It's A Vegan Banana Cake

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Simply unbelieveable. It's already 2012 and I finally managed to put up a post just right on time. Horay! Oh boy, this is just so cool. We're celebrating New Year here right at this moment but still many more countries are waiting for the count down. I bet they're getting truly excited. As always, it's the tradition for me to wait till exactly at 12.00 in the morning to make a wish before it turns  12.01am. So, it needs to be quick. HAHAHA..... And one of my many wishes is still WORLD PEACE &come first. Life will be better if without war. After all, still FOOD & Water is the most important stuffs in our lives. I don't wish to see if there's one day you have billions of dollars and you can't buy food & water or even clean AIR anymore! So, for a good start. I'm learning one of the many vegan baking. It's a vegan banana cake. Vegan is something that is vegetarian and non-dairy products are used. Pretty challenging though but I love it. So, here we go.

Ingredients :
(A)
3 cups   all purpose flour
2 tspn   baking powder
1 tpsn   baking soda
1/2 tspn  salt

(B)
1-1/4 cup  sugar
223gm   margerine, melted
1/2 cup  soy milk
3 tbsp    white vinegar
1 tspn  vanilla extract
3 cups   banana, mashed

*300ml  non-dairy whipping cream, whipped
  1 cup  roasted coconut shreds

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients (A) into a big bowl and stir well.
(2) in another bowl, mix in all ingredients (B) and beat to combine.
(3) next, slowly stir in ingredients (A) into (B) by hand mix.
(4) pour mixture over to a lined 9" tray and bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 40-45mins.
(5) once it's done, leave to cool completely before spread on the whipped cream & top with shredded coconut.

Ta....Da..... Just as simple as this! Don't you think it looks even better than the common banana cake? The cake looks so tall & well risen. And the best thing was NO-Dairy products are used.

The cake tastes very very delicious. It is totally packed with banana....almost every single inch of it! And the texture is as soft. This is pretty addictive. I need to make more vegan baking after this. And hope you too!

STAY GREEN, BE HEALTHY AND HAVE SOMETHING VEGAN FOR A START! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL....

Dear Kristy,

Happy New Year to you and your family! I like your idea of eating vegan cake for this celebration! Being kind to the animals and environment is good. I would love to be a vegetarian too but I have cook and eat meat due to my family's commitment. I would love to explore vegan cooking too :D

Mandi McLendon said...

Is 3 tablespoons vinegar correct? That seems like a lot more than other cakes ive made.

My Little Space said...

Hi Mandy,
Thanks so much for stopping by. To your question, yes...its 3 tablespoon of vinegar I'm using. It gives better rise to the cake.
Happy baking & have a wonderful time on this festive season.
Best wishes, Kristy
