eggless banana chocolate cake recipe | soft chocolate banana cake recipe

eggless banana chocolate cake recipe – my first attempt of baking an eggless as well as vegan cake all on my own was a success. did not refer to the internet or books or anything. just followed my instincts and the result was a delicious, soft, crumbly and a little dense eggless banana chocolate cake.

i was thrilled when i saw as well as had the cake. a few of my baking experiments with cakes and muffins have been disasters. luckily i have never had any disasters while baking bread. i just love baking bread. made some breads and they were all so good. in fact a home baked bread is much much better than the breads we get outside, at least in india.

in this eggless cake recipe, i have used sunflower oil instead of butter. the oil made the cake soft and moist.  i used ½ cup of oil and when mixing the batter i could see the oil in the batter. i was a little apprehensive about the results and the oil. but after baking there was no trace of oil in the cake at all and it was not even a heavy cake.

as an egg replacer i have used flax seed powder/meal. since cocoa is used in the cake along with the bananas, you won’t get the taste and flavor of the flax seed meal. i know some people don’t like the flax seed powder taste in their baked goods.

i had a lot of ripe bananas. with some i made the sweet appams. there were still two bananas left after making the appams and they were very very ripe.

ripe bananas are very good to make any baked good like banana bread, banana cake, banana muffins, cookies. they add a rich dense flavor to the baked dish. they can also be used as an egg substitute. so don’t throw away ripe bananas. you can check this collection of banana recipes to get recipe ideas for bananas.

this is also a very easy cake recipe. all you have to do is mix everything. i always look out for cake recipes which are easy and quick. for me baked recipes have to be easy as well as quick to make. this cake is done in 30 minutes if you have the flax seed meal ready.

as a tip for making eggless cakes, i suggest to store a small bottle of ground flax seed powder in your fridge. comes in handy when you have to make baked goodies plus also you have a powerhouse of nutrition (omega 3 fatty acids, lignans and fibre) stored in your fridge.

i always roast some flax seed, powder them and keep in the fridge. i read somewhere that the powder gets spoilt after a week. but mine has been in the refrigerator for almost a month now.

this eggless banana chocolate cake is perfect tea time cake. i used a bundt pan to make the cake and it serves about 2-3 people.

  1. Hi dassana,
    Can I substitute cocoa powder with bournvita? Or a mix of both? Actually I have some stock of bournvita waiting to get used

    • ruchi, yes you can use bournvita or a mix of both. regarding the almond milk query, i forgot to tell you that you can soak almonds in bulk in hot water overnight. then peel them and grind them to a fine powder. do not make a paste and do not grind till you see oil releasing from them. just peel them and let them dry naturally and then grind. then store in a dabba. in the freezer the ground almonds will last longer. then you just need to take the powder and add in hot milk. add sugar as per taste.

      • Thanks a lot for sharing the almond storage method. It will be easier to do like this

        And I made this cake & it came out fantastic. It was such a soft cake with so little amount of oil. The blend of flavour of banana & chocolate was very nice. Everyone loved it.

        Through your blog only I have learnt to bake so many types of cakes. I had zero experience in baking when i started. From your blog recipes i learnt baking right from the scratch. It feels almost like an online cooking course. Thank you for sharing it with everyone.5 stars
