  • 1 medium ripe banana - mashed
  • 2 tablespoons Choc Shot liquid chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoon vegan mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons plant based Greek yogurt to top optional
  • A small sprinkling of vegan mini chocolate chips to top optional


  • In a large mug mash the banana up as much as you can so there are no large lumps visible.
  • Add in the choc shot (liquid chocolate), light brown sugar, vanilla extract and almond milk and mix everything together.
  • Add in the flour and baking soda, give everything a good mix to make sure everything is well combined.
  • My microwave is 800 watt power and I found the perfect amount of time was 2 minutes and 45 seconds on full power.
  • Start with 2 minutes on full power in your microwave then test your cake it should be firm to the touch with a little spring in it. If not give it another 15 seconds and test again.
  • One cooked let it stand for 1 minute before topping with yogurt / cream and eating.


Choc Shot is basically a liquid chocolate.If you don't have mini vegan chocolate chips then regular sized ones will work as well.The cooking time is based off of my microwave which is 800 watt and it was on full power when I cooked it. The recipe software doesn't allow me to add seconds to the cook time but to get the perfect 'bake' it took me 2 minutes and 45 seconds.You must allow the cake to stand for at least 1 minute after cooking as it will come out of the microwave scalding hot, and it will also need this time to settle down. A little deflation is to be expected.Eat on the day of making.
