Vegan banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting – easy to make, fluffy, moist banana cake filled with smooth, creamy peanut butter and chocolate buttercream. The perfect cake for all occasions!
The weather has been so hot recently that every time I buy bananas they ripen so incredibly quickly that we are unable to eat them all before they get too ripe. For me, once they have got black spots they are just too ripe to eat as they are. They are excellent for baking with however; and an excess of blackened bananas is the perfect excuse to make this vegan banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting. (more…)

One of my pet hates is going out to eat and the only vegetarian/vegan burger option on the menu being a portobello mushroom “burger”; as in, a grilled mushroom in some bread. That my friends, is NOT a burger; that is a disappointing sandwich. More and more restaurants seem to be partaking in this annoying trend, and quite frankly, it needs to die. (more…)
