  • 170 gr. thyme honey or, maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 6 large bananas mashed
  • 250 ml almond or cow's milk

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 300 gr. whole-meal spelt flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup for drizzling the sponge cakes
Chocolate Frosting:
  • 3 large avocados or 3 ½ medium, peeled and deseeded
  • 125 ml coconut oil melted
  • 170 ml maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 200 gr. dark chocolate melted

Instructions
Banana Sponge Cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C. Line 2 non-stick spring form cake tins 21-22cm in diameter, with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the coconut oil, coconut, honey or maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon with a whisk.
  3. Add mashed bananas, eggs and milk and mix well.
  4. Then add the baking powder, soda and lemon juice (the mixture will fizz up a bit at this point). Mix well.
  5. Fold in the spelt flour gradually until just combined.
  6. Divide the mixture equally into the two cake tins and bake for about 60 minutes. If you puncture the cake with a wooden straw and it comes out clean, it is ready. If not, bake for 5-10 more minutes.
  7. Let the cakes cool on a rack for 10 minutes and then remove the cake tins to cool completely. You can bake the cakes the day before.
Chocolate Frosting:
  1. In a large food processor, blend the avocados until very smooth and silky. This will take 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa, vanilla and salt and blend again.
  3. Finally add the melted chocolate and blend until smooth, for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Refrigerate the frosting for 1-2 hours before assembling the cake.
Assembling the Cake:
  1. Make sure the sponge cakes are completely cold.
  2. If necessary, trim the top of the cakes with a saw knife and make it flat.
  3. Slice sponge cakes in half, using a big knife, so that you have 4 sponge cakes altogether.
  4. Place the first sponge on a serving plate and brush the surface with a little maple syrup.
  5. Scoop 2 heaped tablespoons of frosting onto the sponge cake and spread it well with the back of the spoon.
  6. Put the second sponge over the frosting and repeat the same for the rest of the cakes. With a tall spatula spread the frosting over the last sponge cake as well as the sides of the cake until smooth
  7. Decorate with fresh fruit, edible or not flowers, or, with chocolate curls.
