Eggless Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

Honestly, I worked out this recipe when I had to bake a cake for my parents who are under strict diet restrictions. Both of them are instructed to avoid cholesterol rich food, along with some other food items known to contain fat. So, they completely avoid everything that goes into making a cake! Imagine how difficult it becomes to bake a cake for such diet-conscious foodies.

So, I made some drastic changes to my Plain Vanilla Sponge Cake Recipe which luckily enough turned out superb. I will list out some of the changes here, which are completely reversible if you choose to.

  • Eggs: I completely omitted eggs and made this into an eggless cake. Since bananas are an excellent substitute to eggs, so it made my cake moist and dense.
  • Sugar: No sugar. Already bananas have naturally occurring sugar in them. I added 1/4 cup Honey to boost the sweetness in the recipe. Basically to counter the bitterness of chocolate.
  • Flour: Normally I go full-swing with 100% All Purpose Flour or Maida, but here I switched half of it with Whole wheat Flour or Atta.
  • Butter: Again, no Butter. I used Canola Oil. You can use Rice-bran Oil or Sunflower Oil instead as well.
  • Chocolate: I have used unsweetened Cocoa Powder, which are again sugar-free.

I hope I have been able to tell you exactly how I have swapped some of the key ingredients of a cake with healthier alternates. Also let me tell you that no body at my place could actually make any difference in the taste as well as in the texture of this banana cake.

This Banana Cake is slightly more dense as it has 50% Whole Wheat Flour which adds to the texture. It is a perfect healthy alternative to dense Chocolate Cake which often rides with more calories and guilt!

  3. […] Last week my parents were visiting me, although for few hours only. That made me think, what could be best possible dinner dishes I could make that would make them happy. Since, they are currently living in Gujarat, and it pains me to say that it isn’t one of those places that can offer you a complete freedom of eating. Non-vegetarian food is, if not banned, but very hard to get by. So, along with a dinner spread of various fish dishes, I decided to go for this Banana Cake, that has been greatly toned-down in terms of calories. This was done so to suit the diet that my parents are currently following which heavily cuts down the intake of Carbohydrate and Fats. For my original Banana Cake Recipe, click here.  […]
