ingredients for vegan banana cake
  • Bananas: Please use ripe bananas. Do not use overripe bananas but some brown spots are OK.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour or cake flour. If you like gluten-free cake, you can substitute it with rice flour.
  • Baking Powder: I use aluminum-free baking powder.
  • Oil: I usually use taihaku sesame oil (no smell and no color) for baking desserts, but you can use other oil that doesn’t have a strong smell or taste.
  • Soy Milk: I use plain soy milk (no flavor and no sugar). You can substitute it with other milk, such as almond milk, oat milk, or other non-dairy milk.
  • Maple Syrup
  • Regular Salt or Sea Salt

Here you go! Place the cake on a wire rack and allow it to cool for a while. Then, proceed to cut it into your desired pieces and savor the delightful flavors!

I use a cake pan with a removable bottom, so it’s easy to take the cake out. If you don’t have it, place parchment paper inside your pan.


You can store these at room temperature for 3 days and in the refrigerator for 5 days. Whether refrigerating or storing in the open, for best results, be sure to use an airtight container. If you don’t eat them right away, wrap each piece with plastic wrap and keep them in the freezer for a month.

    The cake is delicious and this recipe is amazing! So far I’ve found that cakes made using other cake recipes online are too heavy for the stomach. But this cake is light and is not too heavy like those other cakes.

    Also, this recipe only involves a few easy steps and I like this simplicity. So can make the cake easily and fast. Recipes which are too complicated take too much time and their products do not turn out better.

    1. Oh thank you for such a nice comment, Angel! I like the simple recipe like this and am so happy to hear you love it too!

    This turned out very well! I reduced maple syrup slightly, added walnuts, baked as muffins for about 30 minutes.

    Absolutely amazing! I used very ripe bananas and vanilla extract so the smell attracted everyone to the oven waiting for it to be done 😀 Love it!
