Eggless Banana Cake (With Wheat and Honey) Or Banana Nut Bread

eggless banana cake
My 4 year old is having his summer holidays. That means continuously trying to find something to keep him busy.  Sometimes when I run out of things to do, he gets some TV time. Few days back when he was watching Daniel Tiger, where the tiger makes a banana bread. So the child wanted banana bread. I waited for few days till I had some over-ripe bananas which are hard to eat. So I baked this for him.

Now, I am not sure why this is called Banana bread. When I read wiki, banana bread had the same characteristics as a cake, only thing was it was baked in a bread loaf pan. Anyway, I decided to use both names here.

From many days, I wanted to bake something that uses honey instead of sugar. Also, to make it a little healthy, I thought of using all wheat flour (I used chapati atta). It was not overly sweet, but was absolutely delicious.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup oil
2 big cup over-ripe mashed banana (1 cup after mashing)
1 tea spn vanilla extract
1 tea spn baking soda
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 tea spn butter and little flour for greasing the pan

Preheat the oven at 350F for 10mins. Grease a bread loaf pan with butter, sprinkle and spread flour. Keep aside.
Sieve together flour and soda.
Mash the bananas and add honey, milk, oil, vanilla extract. Beat well till everything is mixed.
Now add flour a little by little mixing all the time. The batter is very runny, but it will bake beautifully.
Spread half the almonds in the bottom of the prepared pan. Now pour the batter, spread remaining almonds on top.
Bake in the preheated over at 350F for about 30-40 mins till a knife/toothepick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the pan once it cools down a bit. Tastes great warm or cold.

Makes about 8 pieces
Preparation time : 50mins

  4. Hi Shilpa, Can I do this in a food processor – adding little flour at a time while the food processor is running?
    Please reply soon as my bananas are already overripe and I want to give this recipe a try! Thanks!

  5. Hi, I tried your recipe today. I was not sure about the temperature, so I kept the cake for 10 mins at 130°, then 30 mins at 200. I tested with a toothpick which came clean at multiple points. But when I cut it, it was raw inside, wet and can’t be eaten. What can I do?

    1. 350F is about 176C. I think your oven has temperatures in Celcius. Looks like it was cooked from the sides but inside was raw. Please keep it at right temperature next time and try.

  6. Thank you. It’s very simple recipe. There was no need to buy anything specially for this. Turned out great. Thank you again 🙂
