Banana, date and cashew is a favourite combo of ours for smoothies and general snacking, so what better than to throw them all together in a cake? It’s a wholesome yet sweet cake that doesn’t even need any sugar (unless, like me, you top it with some melted vegan chocolate!) 

250g self-raising flour

150g wholemeal flour

6 tsps baking powder

3-4 tsps mixed spice

75g broken cashews

50g chopped dates

400ml agave

150ml melted coconut oil

3 large mashed bananas

150g vegan dark chocolate (optional)

  • Mix the solid ingredients together and the liquid ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Combine the liquid with the solid ingredients, and stir in the mashed banana. Mix thoroughly.
  • Turn the mixture into a shallow rectangular prepared cake pan or dampened silicone mould, and bake in the centre of an oven preheated to 180C for about 25 minutes. Test carefully with a skewer to ensure it’s not still sticky in the middle- another reason why using a shallower tin is best for this recipe.
