Eggless chocolate banana cake

Wouldn't it be exciting if your little one waited patiently in front of the oven when the cake was baking and then had 3 full ones when it was out of the oven. He didn't even let it cool. I was so happy to see this. Actually he didn't have a proper dinner but was very excited when I took the cake tray to bake. He loved this one.

  • Banana (ethakka) - 2 medium sized
  • Maida - 2/3 cup
  • Cocoa - 1/3 cup
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Milk powder - 1 tbsp
  • Oil - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup (or you increase to 1 cup)
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  • Instant coffee - 1/2 tsp
  • Boiled water - 1/3 cup

  • Sieve together maida, cocoa powder, milk powder and baking powder. Keep aside
  • Puree banana and keep aside.
  • Mix instant coffee and warm water. Keep aside
  • In a bowl mix together oil and sugar.
  • Add banana puree to this and blend well. Add vanilla essence, mix well.
  • To this add the dry mix and blend well with a wooden spoon. 
  • The batter will be little thick. Add the instant coffee little by little until you get a smooth batter.
