Vegan Ginger & Banana Cake


  • 16 oz Banana, ripe
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil, refined
  • 1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 oz Light Rum
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbsp (~16 g) Hazelnuts, ground
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) Crystallized Ginger Dices
  • 8 tbsp (30 g) Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar 


In a large bowl add 16 oz ripe bananas, 1/3 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 oz light rum and mix in an electric mixer to mash the banana. Add 2 cups AP flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tbsp ground hazelnuts, 1/4 cup crystallized ginger dices and 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut. Mix well and add 1 tsp baking soda. Mix well and add 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar. Be sure not to overmix as the chemical reaction is what makes the cake fluffy since there are no eggs or Aquafaba; though you could try adding fluff ๐Ÿ˜†. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes and let cool. Soak in more rum, if desired.
