This flourless chocolate cake recipe is s great alternative to cakes made with almond flour. It’s also a wonderful nut-free dessert recipe. My husband and older son love Flourless Chocolate Banana Cake. It’s incredible with the Strawberry Meringue Frosting from my second cookbook, Gluten-Free Cupcakes. They call it banana split cake when I serve it that way.
This Flourless Chocolate Banana Cake recipe is quick and easy. The trick? Make sure that your bananas are quite ripe so that the cake is sweet. If you are in need of dairy-free diet recipes, try this cake with my Coconut Whipped Cream recipe.

The inspiration for this Flourless Chocolate Banana Cake recipe came from a feature on Passover dessert recipes in Living Without. That recipe was a bit heavy on the eggs, as Passover desserts can sometimes be. My cake doesn’t have that issue, and is very moist and mousse-like.
