Banana & Tahini Chocolate Fudge Cake

With all this time on my hands I’m spending far too much time procastibaking in the kitchen which also means I’m eating….a lot.

But it’s all worth it for this amazing Banana & Tahini Chocolate Fudge Cake which is so easy to make, a great way to use up those brown skinned bananas and tastes incredible.

I may have eaten half of it within about an hour of making it oops!

This cake is vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free so makes a wonderful wholesome cake to add to any afternoon and actually the kids will love making it and the best bit because it’s vegan, you can lick the bowl and spoon…my favourite part.
