Naturally Sweet Chocolate Cake

INGREDIENTS
2 ripe bananas
1 cup (7oz/ 200g) plain yoghurt or almond cream
1 egg or 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
½ cup blackstrap molasses
1 ½ cup flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Mash bananas with a fork until pureed. Lightly whisk the egg and mix yoghurt and blackstrap molasses together. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and stir.

2. Add all the ingredients together and mix until combined.

3. Transfer the dough to an oven-proof dish lined with baking paper.

4. Bake in the middle of the oven at 356°F (180°C) for 25 minutes. Prick it with a toothpick - if it comes out dry, the cake is ready. Allow to cool after baking. Serve with date sauce or any frosting of your choosing.

SWAPS & TIPS
-To save time, add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until combined instead of steps 1 and 2.

-You can use any type of flour you prefer. For a gluten-free option, use buckwheat flour. The same goes for a nut flour - ground almonds or walnuts work best.

-To replace the egg in the recipe combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 3 tablespoons of water and let the mix sit for 15 minutes before baking. It’ll allow the chia seeds to soak and bind the batter. Ground chia seeds work even better and faster.
