It's been a baking rollercoaster with moments of meringue-madness, mousse-mania and majestic-marzipan... but GBBO is finished.
Fin. Finito. Completo.


For the final episode of #D&DdoesGBBO we asked the superdelicious Hayley from Why Go Without to whip up a baking spectacle to make us drooooool. 

Presenting: Banana & Choc cake

You will need:

6 bananas

4 eggs, 4 egg whites

250g coconut or muscovado sugar

275 buckwheat flour

50g cocoa powder

2.5tsp baking powder


For the icing:

200g Doisy & Dam Maca, Vanilla & Cacao Nibs dark chocolate

100g icing sugar

Melted Chocolate
How to make it:

Mash yo 'nanas with a potato masher, or blend and mix in with the eggs until fluffy

In another bowl add thel dry ingredients and use a spoon to mix

Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients until fully combined

Using an 8” cake tin bake for 40-50 minutes. For a 9” it will take slightly shorter, bake until top is firm and a skewer comes out clean as a whistle

To make the icing, melt the choc in a bowl over a pan on the hob filled with about half 3/4 a glass of water. Stir the choc and once it has all melted into velvety choc, take it off the water and add in the icing sugar and mix well. Then place in the fridge to cool.

Once the cake is cooled, pour on the icing, and then let the eating begin.
