Eggless Banana Cake


I have always wanted to make eggless cake.  I found this eggless banana cake recipe from  http://www.egglesscooking.com.  I modified that recipe quite a bit for my taste.  I reduced the amount of sugar and replaced castor sugar with brown sugar.  I like the taste of brown sugar since it’s not too sharp.  I also added  lot of orange juice which gives a nice flavor in combination with bananas.  Following is the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar
  • 2  oz butter melted
  • Juice and grated rind of one orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup mashed banana
  • ¼ cup pureed dates
  • 2 oz walnuts chopped

Method:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F.  Butter a 9x9x2 inch cake pan and set aside.
  • Sift flour and baking powder and set aside
  • To puree date, add about ¼ cup hot water to dates and leave aside for about 15 minutes
  • Puree dates in a blender
  • Make juice from orange and add enough hot water to make 1 ¼  cups liquid.
  • Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Now add orange juice, vanilla extract, mashed banana, pureed dates and beat on low speed
  • Add the flour and beat mix well.
  • Now add chopped walnuts and mix until all the ingredients are mixed well
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about one hour or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack.
