Chrissy Teigen's Banana Bundt Bread (Vegan-ized)Mike likes to say that Chrissy Teigen is my spirit animal. And honestly, I kind of agree. I’m not nearly as funny or as beautiful as she is, but we’ve got the same level of sass and that’s hard to find.

If you don’t know who Chrissy Teigen is, she’s a gorgeous model, wife to John Legend, mom to adorable babies, and sassiest person in the world. Oh, and amazing chef (her Sweet & Salty Rice is to die for). I am not someone who tends to care about celebrities, but she’s one that I actually follow on Twitter (the only other real celebrity I follow is Matthew Gray Gubler, because… duh).

So here’s the story of the banana bundt bread, I’ll try to keep it short. It all started because Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she needed brown bananas for a recipe. She offered to trade a copy of her cookbook, a pair of John’s underwear, and one of her Becca palettes to anyone who could come through and she was serious. It was a really funny story and interesting to read as the day progressed, but the story literally was EVERYWHERE the next day, so Chrissy was gracious enough to finally share the recipe. Here’s the recipe in its original form (taken from her Instagram):

So I finally made it! I did make a few small changes (sorry Chrissy), only because I had to substitute the eggs. I added some additional moisture (thus the extra banana and the applesauce), and added a small amount of baking powder to help with the leavening. Holy cow, this banana bread is good. It’s a lot different from my recipe, which is a lot denser and more bread-like. This is a lot lighter in texture, richer, and more cake-like. It was good. Like really good.
