Eggless Banana Cake/Bread

banana cake

Banana cake is also called banana bread but I prefer to call it a cake because it is as soft and delicious as a cake. I love banana and also cake so this eggless banana cake is a perfect combo for me. This is also a low calorie cake since I have used less butter than generally used but trust me, it has no effect on the taste.
Recipe of eggless banana cake/bread
2 cups maida (all purpose flour/refined flour)
1 cup sugar
2 pinches salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 over ripe banana (kela)
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
cake batter

 1. Peel and mash banana till smooth and lump free.
2. Sieve together maida, salt and baking powder.
3. Add sugar and butter to mashed banana and mix well till smooth.
4. Preheat oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
5. Add maida from step 2 to banana mixture. Add milk. Beat well (I used hand blender) the batter.
6. Grease a baking pan and dust it with maida. Shake off excess maida.
7. Pour the cake batter in the baking pan and place it in the oven.
8. Bake the banana cake at 180 degree C for 30 minutes or till a knife inserted at the centre of the cake comes out clean.
9. If the upper surface of the cake has not browned, bake at 250 degree C for 5 minutes. This should brown the cake.
10. Take out from the oven and cool for about 20 minutes. Then invert from the baking pan on to a plate. Upon cooling down completely, slice and serve the banana cake.
