I’m carrying on the theme of making everything pretty, pink and laden with rose petals from Valentine’s Day and continuing this in preparation for the Mother’s Day celebrations. Home made gifts or someone cooking me something special are some of my favourite things to receive and I think really show that someone cares. Baking your mum a beautiful cake for Mother’s Day will almost definitely impress her.. and you can both tuck into some delicious cake together as well!
Banana bread is one of my favourite types of cake to bake and this is a banana bread with a slight difference. As well as being deliciously sweet, fluffy and laden with an incredible berry coconut frosting; this cake is also completely gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. For me, I think it’s important to have that perfect balance of a slightly moist consistency, but still enough of a fluffy texture so that you’re not left with a cake that’s too gooey and dense. This fits that category perfectly, which is why I’m sure you’re going to love it as much as I do!
One of my favourite parts and perhaps new favourite frosting recipe of the moment, is this light and fruity coconut icing. Not only is it pretty and pink, but has an incredibly vibrant berry flavour, whilst still being light and refreshing from the whipped coconut milk! It would also be an excellent addition to cupcakes, scones, layer cakes or even to dip fruit into!
