These little cuties are small-batch, vegan, and delicious. They are even layered. Layered cakes are cute. My vegan-month is progressing interestingly, I cheated once so far…. when we went to lunch. Scrambled eggs were cheapest and also very delicious. I’m sorry.
But hey! Ignore my cheating and indulge yourself instead 😀
Vegan Mini Banana Cakes with Cinnamon Frosting
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 baking powder
2/3 cup flour
A couple chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp vegan milk
1 Tbsp vegan spread
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tsp vegan milk
Walnuts to decorate
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease three 7cm-diameter ring molds and place on a greased tray.
Mash the banana into the brown sugar and oil, them mix in the baking soda and baking powder, as well as cinnamon. As little or as much as you like. Mix in the flour and walnuts gently then add the milk a little at a time to add moisture. Don’t over mix. Dip the bottom of the molds into the batter so they stick to the tray. Spoon evenly into to the ring molds and bake for about 20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Cool for 10 mins, un-stick the bottoms and cool completely in the rings.
For the icing, mix together the icing ingredients. Again, cinnamon to taste. Un-mold the cakes and cut each into three layers. Spread some icing between each layer and on top. Decorate with walnuts.
Makes three cute wee cakes which are just as delicious the next day!
