Eggless Banana Walnut Cake is a soft and moist egg-free, butter-free, sugar-free, zero-all-purpose flour tea-time cake. The cake is topped with walnuts. It is an example of perfect healthy bake.
Actually, I wanted to name this Eggless Butter free Sugar free Wholewheat Banana Walnut Cake! Phew, then I thought it's better to call Eggless Banana Walnut Cake and readers will slowly come to know the goodness of the cake.
Most of my cakes are with eggs, so readers often ask me for an eggless bake. Hence, I decided to make it eggless. I love banana cakes and in future, I might share more varieties of banana cake.
Why Eggless Walnut Banana Cake is a Healthy Bake?
My earlier banana loaf was also an egg-free and butter-free cake. However, this eggless banana walnut cake is healthier as I have not used all-purpose flour (maida) instead, I have used wholewheat flour or atta. If you are conscious about calorie intakes then this is a butter-free cake, and you would love the texture of this cake.
Though earlier I have tried eggless butter less cakes but never had the courage to try completely sugar-free cakes. Yes, you read it correct! It's a sugar free cake and I have used jaggery as an alternative option for sweetness and I will try to bake more using jaggery. It gave a beautiful color to my cake. Walnut is a super-food, and you will love the crunch of the walnut in the bake.
Before moving to the recipe of this decadent cake filled with goodness, let's learn the tips and tricks of baking this cake. How did plan for this cake and how did I executed my plan of baking this moist cake.
Which type of Banana should I use to bake a banana cake?
While baking a banana cake the most important ingredient is banana. I will suggest you choose a perfect overripe banana. Use the large banana (robusta) variety which is perfect for baking a cake. Robusta variety of banana has its own taste which it imparts in the cake. Smaller varieties of banana are not perfect when you are preparing a banana cake.
How to add the bananas in the cake batter?
This is a common question people often ask how to add the banana in the cake. Basically, they want to know how we mash the banana before adding it to batter. Earlier I suggested to make puree in a blender. However, if your blender's blade is not in a good condition, you might find lumps in between. Use fork to mash the bananas in a separate bowl before adding it into your batter.
How to add jaggery in the cake batter?
Jaggery is sold as a solid block; however, nowadays jaggery powder is also available so you can use that. However, I have used a jaggery block and before adding it into the batter I have grated it finely using a grater and the cake turned out pretty well.
How to add curd in the cake batter?
Curd should be in room temperature. Avoid adding the curd directly to the batter, it may form lumps. Take the curd in a separate bowl and beat it before adding to the batter.
What is the shelf life of Eggless Banana Walnut Cake?
You can store the cake in room temperature for 3 to 4 days. The shelf-life is more when you store it in refrigerator.
Can I make this cake in Microwave?
I often get this question that whether I can bake in my microwave oven. If you have microwave with convection, then you can definitely bake it on convection mode. Let me tell you, I have baked mine in microwave convection mode and I absolutely the love the texture of the cake. It's not too dense not too fluffy.
