  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • Tsp baking powder

Dash of vanilla extract frosting:

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and grease two small loaf tins with a little coconut oil.
  2. In a food processor, combine the bananas, coconut oil, honey and blend until smooth.
  3. Add in the vanilla extract and eggs and mix again.
  4. Next, pour in the dry ingredients and blend for a third time until everything is well combined and there are no lumps.
  5. Pour the mixture into both of the cake tins and bake in the oven for around 27 minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean when pierced into the cake.
  6. Once the cakes are ready, remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire wrack to cool.
  7. For the frosting, pop the cashews, coconut cream, vanilla, honey and tea into a high powered bender and blitz until smooth and creamy.
  8. When the breads are fully cooled, drizzle each of these with the earl grey frosting and decorate with toppings of choice.
