Pasquale Amico - Chestnut and Banana Cake (Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free)

Cakes are the perfect way to celebrate occasions, say thank you, or to simply share and enjoy with family and friends. Pasquale Amico's Chestnut, Banana and Rice Flake Cake is a tried and tested favourite at his restaurant and so popular that we just had to share it with VegFest visitors! Served warm, drizzled with vanilla cream or a scoop of berry ice cream makes this cake even more moreish that you'll have your vegan and non-vegan friends coming back for seconds... or thirds.
