Banana Cake (Eggless, Vegan, Whole Wheat)

Ingredients

  • ▢4 bananas (medium to large ripe or overripe) – 300 grams
  • ▢1.5 cups whole wheat flour or 180 grams whole wheat flour
  • ▢1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ▢½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ▢1 pinch salt
  • ▢½ cup regular sugar or organic unrefined cane sugar or 100 grams sugar
  • ▢⅔ cup any neutral flavored oil (I used sunflower oil)
  • ▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ▢10 halved walnuts – chopped or any dry fruits of your choice (optional)

Instructions

Preparation

  • Preheat your oven at 180 degrees Celsius. If using a regular oven, heat both the top and bottom elements. For a microwave convection oven, just preheat the oven.

Making Cake Batter

  • Peel and chop the bananas. Add them to a bowl and mash them with a fork. You can also use a blender to mash the bananas.
  • Add sugar, oil and vanilla extract.
  • Mix thoroughly so that the oil mixes evenly with the banana puree and the sugar dissolves.
  • Sieve whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt directly in the bowl. You can also sieve these separately and then add them to the wet ingredients.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients very well.
  • Add the chopped walnuts and fold again. Apart from walnuts, you can also add raisins, pistachios or any nuts and dry fruits of your choice.
  • Pour the batter in a greased or lined loaf pan or round cake pan

Baking Banana Cake

  • Gently tap and shake the pan. Place the pan in the center rack if using a regular oven or otg.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 45 to 50 mins or until a wooden skewer or tooth pick inserted in the cake comes out clean. 
  • If the top of the cake starts browning then cover the top with an aluminum foil or parchment paper while baking.
  • When warm or cooled, gently remove the cake from the pan. Slice and serve banana cake as is with tea or coffee.
