Vegan Banana-Chocolate Chip Cake

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 40 mins

This is my favorite vegan dessert recipe. I got it from "American Vegetarian Cookbook" by Marilyn Diamond. Sometimes I throw health concerns out the window and use corn syrup instead of honey. Live dangerously, right?


  1. Preheat the over to 350. Cream together the syrup, oil, and egg replacer. Add lecithin and bananas.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add carob or chocolate chips, then fold dry ingredients into creamed mixture, stirring just to moisten and combine. Don't overmix.
  3. Pour batter into an ungreased 8-inch cake or Bundt pan. Bake approximately 40 minutes, or until cake tests done with a wooden toothpick. Cool on wire rack.

Made my first Vegan cake ever and it was a hit. I gave some of it out for people to try and hubby got mad cause he wanted more for him. I used my own frosting recipe but the cake came out yummy and I like that it calls for no sugar (i didnt have any in the house). Will make this again!

I made this for a Labour Day BBQ and the only one who turned up their nose was a little boy who I think was tired and hated bananas. This cake is dense, and doesn't really need the chocolate ganache I added on top, but my word, it was tasty. My husband was begging me to make it again, since I don't generally repeat recipes. Then again he has a weakness for chocolate and bananas.
