For the cake

- In another bowl mass the banana with a fork. Add the sunflower seed oil and the coconut milk.
- Then start folding and mixing the solids into the liquids. Note: With a rubber spatula whisk gently scrapping around the edge and finishing by folding the mixture on top of itself. Mix until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the cake pan. Bake for 50'.
- Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool fully for about 1h.
- Bring the coconut milk just to a boil over medium heat.
- Put the chocolate into a large heatproof bowl. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate. Stir the mixture very gently until melted and smooth.
- Pour the ganache over the cake, using a spatula to spread evenly.

When working with chocolate it is best to store your chocolate at room temperature.
If your chocolate chunks are too large, then just use the Bain-Marie method. Place the heatproof bowl with the chopped chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water and gently stir until chocolate is semi-melted. (Note: If the chocolate is fully melted, then the ganache has a thinner consistency and goes all the way down the sides of the cake). Remove from heat. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate. Stir the mixture very gently until melted and smooth.
