Banana Walnut Cake Eggless Recipes (healthy version)
Banana Walnut Cake Eggless is something I can gorge without feeling the least bit guilty. Only 2 teaspoons of fat added, and with quite a bit of whole wheat flour, this is a nice way to indulge without worrying about the after-effects. The ingredients might seem a bit too many, but the simplicity of the recipe will make you forget about that. Even my Mom swears by it :)

2 Bananas, ripe
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar, powdered
2/3 cup yogurt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Chocolate Syrup Powder or
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean powder
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder
2 Teaspoons butter, unsalted, melted
1 Pinch salt
1/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1/4 Cup Raisins
1. Sieve the following together: Flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder (if using), cinnamon powder, vanilla powder, and salt. Set aside
2. In a blender, mix the following and make a smooth paste: bananas, sugar, yogurt, about 2 tablespoons of milk.
3. Add the banana paste to the dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly, stirring without lumps
4. To the mixture, add ghee/butter, chocolate syrup, walnuts, and raisins. Mix well again.
5. In case the batter seems too thick, dilute it with very little milk. The batter should not be runny. When you try dropping the batter with a spoon, it should fall in big globs.
6. Add the batter to a greased (for this particular recipe, I prefer not to dust the pan, just grease it) cake tray or muffin tray. Bake at 150 C in a pre-heated oven for about 35-40 minutes, or till a fork inserted into the cake comes out clean.
7. Makes one 7" cake or about 10 muffins.
