Cake Sale (Banana & Blueberry Bread and Chocolate Tiffin)

My flatmate wanted to organise a cake sale for Animal Care today and I thought it would be a good opportunity to make vegan banana bread, which I’ve wanted to make for absolutely ages. In total, I made vegan banana & blueberry bread (I used this recipe: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2009/06/blueberry-banana-bread.html), vegan chocolate tiffin (I made up the recipe), some chocolate lollipops and flapjacks which massively failed because I forgot to grease the tin so they all stuck to the bottom… I crumbled them up and put some with my cereal this morning though so it was okay :)

The cake sale was a big success – apparently, I couldn’t be there – and all my stuff sold really well, so I’m really happy about that! Most of the other stuff was shop-bought, like jam tarts and brownies, but they raised a lot of money, and Matt took some photos of the stand and some cute dogs that came to visit, so I don’t feel like I missed out too much! I love the atmosphere of cake sales, everyone buying little treats for a good cause, so I might try and have another one over summer – me and Georgia once did a home-made smoothie stall in secondary school and it was so much fun – just need to find out where’s legal to hold one in London…

240g of blueberries

A sprinkle of dessicated coconut to garnish

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, grease a loaf tin.
  2. Mix the milk and half the lemon juice and let it stand. Mash the bananas, then add the remaining lemon juice, milk and agave nectar. Stir well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, then add both mixes together. Fold in the blueberries.
  4. Spread into the tin, then decorate with the coconut. Bake for 50-60 minutes until brown and well-risen.

  1. Hi! I made the Banana bread, except i swapped the blueberries for strawberries because i couldn’t find any. It turned out really gooey even after being in the oven for over 1 hour. So it was more like a pudding than a bread! But it tasted great though, awesome recipe :)

    • Oh that sucks, maybe my oven’s a little hotter than yours – they can really vary in temperature, but glad it tasted nice anyway! If this is the Hidey I’m friends with then hi! I’d love for you to facebook message me a picture if you took one :) xx

  2. Yum! Your banana and blueberry bread looks delicious! I love that it’s a healthier twist on a loaf cake and still manages to use simple ingredients. Congratulations on helping to raise money for a worthwhile cause as well- that puppy is just adorable! :)

  3. Aw! Animals are always a good cause! Your loaf looks lovely, so I’m not surprised it sold well — health conscious baking and compassionate causes = win-win!
