Preparation edit

  1. Preheat oven to 170°C (338°F).
  2. Mix the buckwheat flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl, and set aside.
  3. Mix the maple syrup with the applesauce, the lemon juice, and the grated ginger. Mash the bananas using the back of a fork before mixing them with the other wet ingredients.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients with the banana mixture. Be careful not to overmix—you don’t want to beat out all of the air.
  5. Once everything is well-mixed, add the dark chocolate and gently mix again.
  6. Line a cake pan (20 x 20 cm/ 8 x 8 inch) with parchment paper and pour the batter into it.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
