Egg-less Whole Wheat Banana Cake Recipe

Egg-less Whole Wheat Banana Cake Recipe

Usually, the popular Banana Cake is prepared with plain flour, refined cane sugar, butter and nuts.  I wanted to make a healthy recipe, so I used whole wheat flour, jaggery and olive oil. To give a simple twist, I added tutti frutti instead of nuts. To make a complete vegan recipe, skip the tutti frutti and add dry fruits or nuts to the cake.

Recipe type: Dessert | Cake
Cuisine: World
Servings: 12 pieces
Prep Time: 25 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins | Total Time: 45 mins
Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients:

  • Ripe / Overripe Banana – 4 to 6 (depends on the size)
  • Jaggery – 1/2 cup
  • Whole Wheat Flour – 1 cup
  • Olive oil – 1/2 cup
  • Water – 2 to 3 tbsp
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Tutti frutti – few (toppings) optional
  • Cocoa chips – few (toppings) optional

Description:

  1. Get all the ingredients ready. Take ripe or overripe banana. Over ripe banana tastes better.
  2. Now peel the bananas and smash it completely without any lumps. Either you can use a blender or smash with fork or spoon.
  3. After smashing the bananas, add the jaggery into that and beat well, until the jaggery dissolves completely.
  4. Once it is done, add oil into that mixture and beat well.
  5. Once the banana puree blends with oil. Add vanilla essence also into that and mix well.
  6. Now take the wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl, mix well and add into the banana puree.
  7. Meanwhile, set the oven to preheat mode at 180 degrees for 10 mins. I use automatic cake cooking option, so the timing is also automatic. It depends on your oven.
  8. Now the important thing here is, cut and fold the whole mixture, Do not beat or stir the batter. Just cut and fold the whole batter without any lumps. Once you get the smooth batter, add some dry fruits or raisins or tutti fruity into that and cut and fold the batter.
  9. Once it is ready, pour the batter into the greased baking tray. Hold the tray and just tap the tray on the sides to get the batter spread evenly on all the corners.
  10. Keep the tray inside the oven at convection mode for 20 mins. Since it’s already preheated, it takes less minutes to bake. For some people it might take more or less time, just keep an eye and check after 15 mins with toothpick to see whether it is baked completely or not.
  11. Once it is done, let it cool down for few mins and transfer to a plate, cut and serve it. Yummy wheat banana cake is ready to serve.

    • I have used Kadali Banana to prepare this cake. These bananas were grown on our farm without using any chemicals. The fruit is small, but it tastes good. I didn’t add any extra sugar.
