Banana, almond and chocolate 'cheese' cake

Serves 4

 

Biscuit layer

  • 80g pecans
  • 80g almonds
  • 1 tablespoon homemade almond butter (if not homemade, natural & organic)
  • 10 medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Middle layer

  •   2 spotty, ripe bananas
  •   3 tablespoons almond butter

Chocolate layer

  • 1 spotty, ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao (could also use cocoa powder)
  • 10 medjool dates
  • 3 tablespoons filtered water

Plus

  • 2 spotty, ripe bananas for layering

 

 

Biscuit layer

  1. To make the base layer place the pecans and almonds into a food processor and blitz until fine. Add the almond butter, honey and dates and blitz again until completely mixed and sticking together.
  2. Either place in individual glasses or in a cake tin, both work fine, but I think it’d nice to give people individual dishes. Plus, you can see all the layers which looks great!

Middle layer

  1. To make the banana and almond layer, simply add the banana and almond butter to the food processor and blitz until smooth.
  2. Spoon this on top of the base and place in the freezer for about 15min to set.

Chocolate layer

  1. While the bottom two layers freeze you can make the chocolate layer. Place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Slice the bananas for layering.
  3. Remove the glasses/cake tin from the freezer anyplace a layer of banana on top. 
  4. Then spoon on the chocolate layer.
  5. Add another layer of banana to top it off. You could also add some strawberries which is also delicious.
  6. Enjoy :-)

Strawberry Cake

Comment

Strawberry Cake

  • 160g coconut oil or butter
  • 280g quinoa flour (could use ground almonds if grain free)
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g coconut sugar
  • 30g honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 350g strawberries, cut in half

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a regular sized cake tin (a larger tin would create a thinner cake and will take less time to cook) with grease proof paper, or grease with butter/coconut oil.
  2. Place the coconut oil or butter, coconut sugar and honey in a food processor and mix until smooth. 
  3. Keep the food processor going and slowly add the flour, baking powder, vanilla and eggs.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and fold in the strawberries.
  5. Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin and place in the oven for about 40 minutes. Check it is cooked by piecing with a knife or metal skewer. If it comes out clean, it is cooked.
  6. This is lovely served with coconut yoghurt or homemade banana ice cream.
