Eggless Banana Cake with Carrots and Raisins

eggless banana cake with carrots and raisins

I have always stayed away from eggless cakes we cause we love very fluffy cakes which are usually made by lot of eggs. But recently, we have got few strict vegetarian friends who do not eat eggs. So I have been venturing into eggless baking. Slowly we have started liking them now. It is amazing that last few cakes that I have baked are all eggless. I baked the very popular date cake for a get together recently and it was gone within minutes. So when we were planning to go for a trip to animal safari over the weekend, I started thinking about cakes. I decided to bake this eggless banana cake with carrots and raisins. I have baked couple of times before and everyone loved it – ofcourse you should like the banana flavor to like this cake!.

This cake is based on a old recipe banana-carrot cake. I tried to change it a bit to taste different and make it little more healthy. Cardamom gives a great aroma to it. I was a bit lazy to make cardamom powder, so I just used 1/2 tea spn. I think 1 tea spn of it would have given a better aroma. The cake came out very moist and soft. The biggest fan was Ishaan, so I was very happy.

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 cup grated carrot
1 cup sugar
1 cup mashed banana (approx 2 bananas)
1 tea spn freshly ground cardamom powder
1/2 cup oil
2 tea spns baking powder
1 tbl spn raisins
1/4 tea spn salt

Method:
Preheat the oven at 350F for 10mins.

i have tried your earlier version of banana carrot cake…will definitely try this.My electric hand blender conked out n i do not have the guts to try it out the old-fashioned way_like how my amma used to mix cakes.Do you think it will be okay as this recipe does not have eggs?

Thanks a lot for this simple yummy recipe.

Fantabulous!Have to try it this weekend. BTW there seems to be some problem with the links for date cake and banana-carrot cake. It gives content not found error. Also, when I accessed the link for the eggless banana cake from the notification which I get, it gave the same error.

Hi shilpa,

Tried your recipe and the flavor was really good …but I got a bitter aftertaste …was wondering if you might know the reason .. I didn’t even use a lot of cardamom

says:

Sangeetha, not sure what caused the bitterness. Did you use fresh baking powder? sometimes very old ones leaves a smell and after taste

Hi Shilpa, I am a big fan of your blog and recipes. I have tried this cake recipe already twice- once when my parents visited and once when my in-laws visited. And both times it turned out so yumm that my folks at home think I am a good baker;) thanks and keep up the hard work.

Hi
I followed the exact portions but my cake turned soggy.. Part of it was still wet n rest of it got cooked properly.. Any reason y it can happen?

Probably the heat was too high, different ovens have different heat distributions. I would suggest reducing the heat next time and baking for a longer time

Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe. I want to know if I bake it in a microwave how many minutes shall I bake it for and should I bake it on high my microwave is 900w.

says:

Sorry never tried baking in microwave. Try for about 5-6mins and check. I read in many places that it cakes get baked faster in microwave. If it is not baked, keep it back
