A moist whole wheat chocolate banana loaf cake. This eggfree banana cake flavoured with a dash of cinnamon is perfect as a tea time snack.
Its another special day. My youngest son’s first birthday. I wanted Adbhut’s first ever cake to be something he would enjoy. So here’s something with his favourite fruit.
I am super happy about how this whole wheat chocolate banana loaf cake turned out. Its simple, healthy and flavorful at the same time. My home smells all warm and ‘cinnamony’.
It is often thought that whole wheat bakes are dense or taste ‘aata -like’. Try this . Its soft, moist and unless you tell its wholewheat no one would guess it.
Have a look at this nutty banana cake too.
Whole Wheat Choco Banana Loaf
A warm slice of this choco banana loaf is sure to bring a smile on your face. And it is eggfree and wholewheat too!
Sift the whole wheat flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Blend the bananas, sugar, 3/4 cup of milk and oil together into a smooth puree.
Add baking soda to the above, mix once and allow to stand undisturbed for 5 mins.
Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins.
Now add the wet ingredients into the sifted flour and fold in until no lumps are left.
Add the 1/4 cup of milk and vanilla essence and mix in gently till you get a even consistency
Pour into a greased loaf tin.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 30 mins.
Unmould after about 10mins. Loosen the edges using a knife and turn upside down on a tray. Tap firmly on the tin and get this amazing neat loaf
Cut after it cools completely in order to get neat slices. I covered it with a cling film after letting it cool completely and sliced it a few hours later.
1. I added cinnamon to balance out the sometimes overwhelming smell of ripe bananas plus it really gives an amazing flavor to this cake. But it is optional and completely your choice.
2. You can slice the cake sooner too. It tastes lovely warm.
3. Oven temperature and time may vary. So its better to check on the cake post 25 mins. Its done once a skewer inserted comes out clean.
