6 Ingredient Banana Chocolate Mudcake with Peanut Butter Frosting
If anyone remembers my 3 ingredient chocolate brownies that I posted on Instagram, this is basically a variation of that recipe. Once I made the brownies I realised that you could shape them into pretty much any shape you want and create a whole host of things. Had I not become so lazy during my pregnancy my plan was to actually make them in various ways like muffins, lava cakes and mini cakes. I hope to one day get around to it and put them all in the one blog post. In the meantime, here is one that I did actually create! The texture of this is very dense and it reminded me of a mud cake. So I thought that’s what I would call it. The frosting is more of a sauce that I had left over from some pancakes I had made earlier that morning so I decided to combine it all together and make a quick little mud cake especially since I always seem to have lots of over ripe bananas that need using up. It’s quite an easy recipe. I am going to be honest and say that it’s not my most favourite, but it’s an awesome one when you need to whip up something super quick and need to use up some banana’s!
I think the peanut butter and strawberries really added to this recipe but you can get so creative with a million different toppings. I also love serving it with my vegan vanilla custard, but let’s be honest I like that custard on anything! So since this is a quick and simple recipe, enough blabbing from me and let’s get onto the recipe!
