Kid friendly banana cake with chocolate icing – refined-sugar free, delicious and simple to make.
Kid friendly banana cake with chocolate icing
My baby boy’s first Birthday cake – it was a bit of a challenge I will admit.
He used to love bananas so they had to be in there.
I didn’t want him to have sugar so that couldn’t be there.
I was going to go all out and try one of those whacky egg-free, dairy-free recipes as well but then the thought of it failing stopped me (read – I was way too lazy to make another cake if it failed).
Instead of regular sugar I used coconut sure and while a lot of times I have found it a bit bitter, this was just right.
Bananas help with the sweetness and are my go-to for reducing the sugar when I convert a recipe.
The cake was super simple and I dressed it up with my monkey jungle cake toppers and served it on a piece of plastic grass I got from the $2.30 shop.
The other older kids went straight for the best ever chocolate mud cake but Mr One and I enjoyed his cake for morning tea for the next couple of days and one of the best critics, my grandmother Guppy, thought it was delicious.
