Eggless Chocolate Banana Wheat Cake

This recipe has been submitted to Monthly Mingle – Bread and Chocolate (February 2010) hosted by Life’s a Feast and What’s for lunch hunney?

The whole wheat flour makes the cake healthy. Mashed banana holds the cake together so eggs are not required.

Ingredients

1 cup whole wheat cake

1 cup mashed banana

1/3 vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup milk

1 tsp cardamom powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tbsp baking powder

½ tbsp baking soda

1 small milk chocolate bar (I used 4 Lindt eggs)

Whole Wheat Chocolate Banana Eggless Cake

Mix oil and sugar in a bowl. Sift wheat flour with baking powder and baking soda on it while mixing the batter. Add banana, vanilla essence and cardamom powder. Slowly add milk tablespoon-by-tablespoon and mix the batter till it is of pouring consistency.

The cake will rise and will deflate when cooled. Do not worry. It will retain its shape. This cake is great for people who do not have eggs. Also, for vegans, milk can be replaced with water.

Banana Cake – Slow Cooker Recipe

Hubby Dear and I were on this diet where we had to consume only milk and bananas on a particular day of the week. So he got this huge bunch of bananas for the both of us. Unfortunately, we never could make it to that part of that diet and more unfortunately, the bananas remained untouched on the table for a week. Needless to say they had become overripe and completely inedible. So I whipped up this banana cake recipe to finish them off…

Preparation Time – 1 hour 30 mins

Servings – 8 people

 

Ingredients

3 eggs

1 cup refined flour

¾ cup sugar

½ cup ghee (unsalted butter)

3 ripe bananas

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

Vanilla essence

Edible yellow color

¼ cup milk

 

Blend the eggs, ghee and sugar in a mixer. Chop the bananas finely. Alternately, the bananas can be churned with a little milk to form a thick paste. Pour the batter in a bowl and add flour slowly stirring continuously. Add baking powder, baking soda, vanilla essence and edible yellow color and mix till a pouring consistency is achieved. Add a little milk if the batter is too thick. Add the bananas to it and mix well. Grease a baking dish and sprinkle four on it. Pour the batter in it. Pre-heat the cooker for 5 mins on high flame and put the baking dish in it. Bake for 1 hour. 

 

 

Tip: Do not store the cake for more than 1 week.
