this banana cake recipe has been adapted from my very popular tried and tested banana bread recipe. i have just increased the proportion of oil and a bit of bananas in this recipe to make it more lighter and soft. also reduced the amount of baking powder and added some chopped walnuts.

not to forget the cake is made with whole wheat flour. i always try to include whole wheat flour wherever possible. few baked recipes made with whole wheat flour are:

this eggless banana cake was liked by everyone in the family and more so by my brother in law. banana cake has been his favorite cake since childhood. he said its one of the best banana cakes that he has had and it reminded him of the banana cakes that were made in vienna bakery in santacruz, mumbai.

so if you have some ripe bananas at home then you can easily make this delicious cake. some more banana recipes you can make are:

the banana cake can be served plain as it is. you can also serve the cake slices with some whipped cream or if you want, frost the cake with butter or cream icing. a chocolate icing would also go very well. at home we prefer it plain to go with the evening cup of tea or filter coffee or as a sweet dessert snack.

recipe notes

tips for making eggless banana cake recipe:

  • depending on the temperature in your oven and the size of your pan, the cake might take less or more time than mentioned here. the temperature varies from oven to oven. so take your call and keep an eye. the benchmark is that a tooth pick inserted in the banana cake should come out clean.
  • use a neutral flavored oil like sunflower oil. i have also made this cake with olive oil and coconut oil.
  • instead of oil you can use butter. melt the butter and use as the same proportion of oil.
  • chocolate chips or cocoa powder or cacao nibs can also be added.
  • if you like spiced cakes, you can also add about ⅛ tsp of cinnamon or nutmeg powder in the cake.

5. fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients very well. fold using the cut and fold method. do not mix. in case the batter looks very thick, then you can add some water. the amount of water to be added depends on the quality and texture of the whole wheat flour and also on the consistency of the batter. so add only if the batter looks very thick.

    • yes of course you can use jaggery instead of sugar. you can use the same measurement as that of sugar. if the bananas are very sweet, then add ⅓ cup jaggery. you can use coconut oil. do note that with coconut oil, the aroma of it will be there in the cake.
