Mother’s Day is less than a week away, but there’s good news for those who haven’t been able to start with their celebratory preparations yet. If you are wondering how to prep within a short span of time to surprise your mom, the first thing you gotta do is stop worrying. You don’t need to throw a huge party for making the most important female in your life feel special. Even a simple tea party with a handful of near and dear ones can be enough to put a smile on her face. All you have to do order some tasty food items, put up cheerful decorations and invite her close friends. But apart from that, you also have to arrange a special Mother’s day themed cake because the event would be incomplete without it.
So here’s a wonderful recipe for one of the most popular Mother’s day special confections - the banana choco chip cake:
- 180 g of buckwheat flour
- 50 to 100 g of dark choco chips (70%)
- 100 g of unrefined and granulated sugar (rapadura, xylitol or coconut palm)
- ½ tsp of salt
- ½ tsp of soda bicarbonate
- 2 eggs or flax eggs (in order to make a flax egg, mix 3 tbsp of water with 1 tbsp of ground flax, then refrigerate for 15 minutes)
- 3 ripe mashed bananas
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 160 ml of mild olive oil
- First of all, preheat your oven to a temperature of 180 degrees C (356 degrees F) and then line using a round & loose 8” bottom cake tin.
- Next, take a regular sized bowl and add the sugar, soda bicarbonate, flour and salt in it. Keep stirring until they have combined thoroughly.
- In another bowl, whisk the vanilla extract and oil with the flax eggs. After that, slowly stir in the mashed bananas.
- Now mix together the batches of dry & wet ingredients, and carefully stir in the dark choco chips.
- Pour the batter in the cake tin that you prepared earlier, and place it in the oven. Allow to bake for around 40 minutes or so. The cake will become ready to be taken out of the oven when it feels firm and gives slightly when pressed.
- Once ready, set the cake on a wire rack and allow it to cool down.
