  • 6 cups (720 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cups (320 ml) vegetable oil
  • 4 ripe bananas

2. In a stand mixer fitted with the whip attachment, sift the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt on low speed.

3. In separate bowls, add the vinegar to the soy milk, and add the vanilla to the oil.

4. With the mixer on low, add the oil mixture, the soy milk mixture and 1 cup water.
