Chocolate and Banana Marble Cake


I love banana cake and I love chocolate, so it's no surprise that this is one of my favorite cakes.

If you have intolerances or are vegan this recipe has the proper substitutions - without ever losing the consistency and deliciousness of each slice.

  • 2 tablespoons ofmelted butter or olive oil

  • 1/3 cup coconut, almond or other milk you like

  • 1 cup spelt flour or buckwheat flour

  • 1/2 cup almond flour (you may choose to use 1 and 1/2 cups spelt flour in its entirety instead of this flour)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa

  4. Remove 1 cup of this mixture and place in a small bowl. Add the cocoa and hot water. Mix together.
