Banana Cake

It was a tiring and hectic week for me, with deadlines to meet and some unfinished work at office occupying my mind , I look forward to my weekends where I can fully relax with a cup of tea and no rushing for time. It is that time of the week where the clock slows down for me. But all these works leaves me little time to organize my fruits and vegetables stacked up in the refrigerator. When I opened up to have a look, the first sight was a bunch of over ripe banana starring at me and these needs to be treated with love and care and some goes into smoothies and the rest into making this soft , melt in the mouth whole wheat eggless banana cake. This banana cake with the goodness of whole wheat flour, flax seed, nutmeg, brown sugar and extra virgin olive oil is surely a guilt free indulgence.

 

This banana cake is a cross between the banana bread and a sponge cake and the perfect alternative to use the over ripe banana. Speaking of cakes, it is a different story when it comes to banana cake, I made it in a loaf tin so that it can be cut into slices and served at tea time or even in the kid’s tiffin box. Banana bread, banana cake, banana loaf, whatever you call it, before trying this at your home , have a look at some of the benefit of having banana in your diet.
