Chocolate Banana Vegan Cake

One of my best friends in the whole world is a vegetarian and I never got the opportunity to make her some special desserts.  Well, I finally got the chance to this past weekend on Sunday when she came over for a photo shoot she had planned.  Did I mention she is an amazing hair stylist and has been doing my hair for years.  She is the only person I trust with a pair of scissors near my hair.  Anyways, since she was coming over I found this amazing vegan chocolate cake recipe from Joy the Baker but I just substituted the walnuts for pecans and added some bananas in there.  I am happy I added the bananas in the cake because it was a total hit with my friend and the rest of the girls!!  Enjoy!
