DIRECTIONS

  • CAKE: Sift dry ingredients into a bowl (if using thick flour such as soy, it can work better if you sift twice) In another bowl mash banana and mix with liquid ingredients.
  • Combine and stir both together till well blended.
  • Pour into a lightly oiled microwave cake dish (I use a ring dish).
  • Cook high heat (use turntable) 6 to 8 minutes or until cake tests done.
  • SAUCE: In a bowl, mix a small amount of milk with cornstarch to create a paste.
  • In a saucepan, combine cocoa, sugar/syrup and salt.
  • Gradually add milk and cornstarch mix until smooth.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils.
  • Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly until desired consistency.
  • Stir in vanilla etc.
  • If mixture needs to thicken, take some out of saucepan and mix with cornstarch.
  • For Vegan do not use milk [dairy].
