Banana baking fun!

I’ve often been confused about how things are named/classified/compared. Well, I’m often confused, but that’s a whole other story.

What’s the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? Is it just one has icing?

What about banana bread and banana cake?
Passata and crushed tomatoes are the same aren’t they?

Well, on Tuesday night, I baked a banana choc chip & pepita... Ummm. Was it bread? Was it cake?

I shall call it breake.

And it was delicious!!

I used a random Google recipe, which got some good ratings so I thought I would give it a go. And I am glad I did!

I tweaked it a little; my tweaks are below, in italics.

VEGAN BANANA yumminess

1/3 cup vegan margarine (I used nuttelex)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour (wholemeal)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda (cautiously used about 1/4, see here)
2 ripe bananas, mashed (I used 3)
1/2 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
Good shake of cinnamon
4 lines of Whittaker’s 72% chocolate, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the vegan margarine and sugar, then stir in the flour, sifted baking powder & baking soda. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes.


  1. What about banana cread? like street cred (not sure of the spelling) but far more delicious?
