I get asked a lot about vegan recipes lately – do I make vegan cakes, are they tasty, are they healthy seem to beĀ spme of the questions that I got quite often over the past few weeks. The answer is yes to all of them! Vegan cakes are not guilt free, but they surely are healthier and just as delicious as other cakes. Surprising, right?! Especially coming from a butter addict like myself. But hey, your taste buds can be thought to love things, they can be educated into enjoying certain foods and that’s what I’m doing with vegan desserts. So yes, I like them more and more and I find them to be part of a market that is expanding every day – people choose wisely what they eat nowadays and veganism is becoming more than a trend if you ask me, a no expert.

So today I have for you the best banana bread I ever made! Yes, it’s vegan, yes, it’s delicious, yes, it’s moist and fluffy, yes, it’s packed with flavor. In fact, it has more flavor than any other butter and eggs version I ever tried. That might be the key actually – there’s no extra ingredient to wash away the banana flavor – it’s just pure banana! This vegan banana bread is perfect with a mug of hot tea or just on its own, as a sweet snack for those times you need an energy boost. Isn’t that great?!

E post si parca nu v-as mai ispiti cu dulciuri decadente si torturi ciocolatose. Am inceput saptamana cu un chec cu nuca de cocos, fara lapte, oua, unt sau smantana si o continuam in acelasi ritm cu inca un chec pe care il ador – cu banane si stafide, plus multa nuca deasupra pentru un plus de gust si textura.

E un chec extrem de aromat, poate si pentru ca nu are oua ori unt care sa-l mai dilueze, asa incat ingredientul de baza ramane banana, care leaga aluatul, il pastreaza proaspat si ii da o aroma aparte. Stafidele au fost o idee de ultim moment – tocmai primisem o punga de stafide de la Lidl si parca imi facea cu ochiul, dar nu e obligatoriu sa le puneti in compozitie.

Ingrediente:

Chec:

  • 280g faina alba (sau un amestec de alba cu integrala)
  • 1/2 lingurita praf de copt
  • 1/2 lingurita bicarbonat de sodiu
  • 1/2 lingurita sare
  • 1/4 lingurita scortisoara pudra
  • 125ml ulei vegetal neutru
  • 50g zahar brun
  • 100g zahar alb
  • 4 banane mici, piure
  • 80ml lapteĀ vegetal (nuca de cocos, soia, migdale, orez)
  • 1 lingurita extract de vanilie
  • 1 lingurita otet de mere
  • 80g stafide (optional)

Glazura si topping:

  • 2 linguri lapte vegetal
  • 100g zahar pudra, cernut
  • 1 mana miez de nuca, tocat

Mod de preparare:

Chec:

  1. Preincalziti cuptorul la 180C si tapetati o forma de chec cu hartie de copt.
  2. Amestecati ingredientele uscate intr-un bol si cele umede in alt bol.
  3. Combinati cele doua mixuri si amestecati scurt doar pana la omogenizare.
  4. Turnati amestecul in tava pregatita si coaceti pentru 35-40 minute sau pana trece testul scobitorii.
  5. Lasati sa se raceasca in tava apoi transferati pe un platou.

Glazura:

  1. Amestecati laptele cu zaharul pudra pana obtineti o glazura groasa, dar care curge, adaugand zahar sau lapte daca mai e nevoie, pana obtineti consistenta dorita.
  2. Turnati glazura uniform peste chec si acoperiti imediat cu miez de nuca.
  3. Lasati glazura sa se intareasca si feliati checul.
  4. Sa aveti pofta!
