Cocolate Chai Banana Cake

Mama deserves something really good for Mother's Day! Yes, she really deserves it - and I'm not there to hug her *baddaughter* That's why I thought: chocolate always helps and my mother loves chocolate banana cakes. It might seem awful to expect your mother to bake her own cake on her special day but maybe the cute looking pictures will comfort her a little. So you can do better as I and spoil your mom on Mother's Day here's one of my new favorite recipes. And still Mother's Day is not the only day to spoil your mother!

Makes one cake (7 inch diameter/18cm diameter)
Preparation time: 2 hours
Soak time: 4 hours 
Baking time: 25 minutes

For the biscuit:
3 3/4 cup spelt flour
1 1/4 cup raw cane sugar
2 tbsp. vanilla sugar
1/3 cup hazelnuts
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa
1 pinch cinnamon
1 tsp. chia spice
1 can aquafaba (chickpea water)
1/2 cup oil
2 1/2 cup water with gas

Preheat oven to 356°F (180°C) Upper-/Lower heat. In a mixing bowl mix together flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, hazelnuts, baking powder, cocoa, cinnamon and chai spice. Whip the aquafaba 10-15 minutes until its stiff. 
Mix Oil and water to the flour mixture and stir until the dough is smooth. Carefully fold in the aquafaba. Divide dough on three spring pans and bake at 356°F for 25 minutes. Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool off. Carefully unstick the cake out of the form and cut off the top to straighten the cake. 

For the chocolate cashew cream:
3/4 cup cashews
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. water with gas
2 bananas, ripe
1 2/3 cup chocolate

Soak in the cashews over night or at least 4 hours. Pour off and wash the nuts. Mash the nuts with one banana. Chop the chocolate and add to it. Blend until the cream is smooth. Put the cream in the fridge to keep it cold until it is solid enough to decorate with a tube. 
Take the other banana and cut it in small pieces. Spread the pieces on the lower bottom of the biscuit. Spread some cream on it and put the next biscuit on top. Again spread with cream and put the last biscuit on top. Spread the rest of the cream around the cake and decorate with sweets, cream or fresh berries.

Have lots of fun with baking and enjoy!!
