Thanks for stopping by and Welcome to Renus Home. This is my first post on this blog. This Eggless banana cake is a welcome treat appreciating your visit here.
Banana and chocolate are made for each other and this combo makes the cakes moist and delicious that one would get addicted to. This Cake can also be made to a marble cake and is optional. It turns out to be fluffy, soft and delicious, all without using eggs. Mashed banana gives a moist and perfect texture to any cake. I try substituting mashed banana for eggs and it always works out for me except that the cakes or breads turn out to be slightly dense than the ones with eggs.
First i will get you thru the step by step pictures.
How to make this Eggless banana marble cake
1. First set the oven to Preheat at 170 deg C. Leave it to heat up for at least 15 minutes
2. Prepare the pan by greasing and flouring lightly
3. Mix the flour, baking powder and baking salt. Break up the lumps of flour. It can be sieved as well
4. Melt the butter and add to mashed banana and vanilla extract
5. Add sugar and mix everything well
6. Add the flour from step 3. Mix well . Set aside half of the batter to another bowl
7. Add cocoa powder to the other half and mix well to break up any lumps
8. Pour batters, starting with white batter and then alternately with cocoa mixed batter. Fill up the pan this way till all the batter is used up.
9. Swirl the batter lightly with a skewer to get a marble effect.
10. Bake this for about 40 minutes, i insist others to check after 30 minutes to prevent over baking. Skewer inserted comes out clean when it is baked fully
