Hello, I tried this chocolate cake recipe few hours ago but somehow couldn't get the same result as you, my cake really wasn't looking that good (but tasted fine). What kind of chocolate do you use? Maybe it's because of the flour I used, i'm gluten intelorant so I used Rice flour instead of usual wheat flour.
Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cake
This cake was an invention of a good friend of mine and is the easiest cake in the world to make. Not only that, everybody loves it. Because there aren’t any eggs or dairy products in it, this dessert is both low in fat and good for you. Sweet and nutritious, it’s a great treat for children of all ages and one of the best ways to use up those old bananas.
1 3/4 c. unbleached flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1 c. cane sugar or turbinado sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. fine salt
3/4 c. soy milk
2 overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c. safflower oil or any light vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla
3/4 c. vegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8- or 9-inch square or round pan with baking spray.
Put the dry ingredients into a bowl and blend with a fork. Add the oil, soymilk and vanilla and stir until the mixture comes together, being careful not to over mix. Mix in mashed bananas and finally fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake on center rack for 35-40 minutes, just until cake tester comes out clean.
Remove the cake from oven and place it on wire rack to cool. To serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy. Also great topped with crushed pineapple or berries.
Note: Over mixing batter will create a more dense cake with a tougher crumb. Cakes should be gently mixed until dry ingredients are incorporated, unless specified otherwise.

I agree. It is a cake and cakes are " sometimes foods" to splurge on. I also think that saying that it is good for you means that it's better for you than cakes made with dairy, eggs, etc. As far as it being white - the first ingredient says " unbleached flour _or_ whole wheat pastry flour". Chocolate is actually good for you in moderation. So are bananas. And if oil/fat is a problem you can usually substitute all or half with applesauce in most recipes.
Great cake!! I always have bananas that rippen too fast and never know what to do with them! I happen to agree with the author that this is healthier than most desserts that are not vegan and loaded with eggs and butter. Sweets are ok in moderation- but with this recipe, it's soooo tempting to eat more!
Great muffins, but I had to laugh at the author who thinks this is good for you. White muffins, made with oil and chocolate chips. Not exactly bunny food. But still pretty yummy
