Eggless Marble Banana Cake | Easy & Simple Cake Recipes

Remember the Zebra Cake I posted some eons back on this blog?My God,that was such a gorgeous cake.Everyone on the blogosphere went crazy baking these amazing Zebra cakes,which required a little precision in pouring the batter and Voila!you get pretty Zebra stripes when you cut the cake.I wonder how I had the courage to try something like that then,I mean,I was just a beginner baker.But I think that's why I did it,had no clue about the nuances and I just went with the flow and followed the recipe to the T.

If you're wondering why I'm going all nostalgic,well this Banana-Chocolate cake is a Zebra cake inspired cake.I say inspired because,Radhika who posted this recipe says the stripes were not even and she was calling it a Marble cake instead.Well,so am I.The batter was not as thin as the original Zebra cake recipe and I'm guessing that's the reason the stripes were not even.But hey,no one's complaining!

I have not been baking actively these days,primarily due to curb the intake of flour,butter and sugar but mostly because I'm trying to include more fruits and vegetables in my toddlers diet(as well as ours!)as snacks and he's loving it so far and hasn't asked for cake in a long time.But some indulgences once in a while is allowed no :)and this has fruit too,so win-win!

Though the cake is delicious as it is,I decided to dress it up with a bit of leftover ganache and believe me,it tasted yum!You could just dust a bit of powdered sugar on top or serve it plain :)

Recipe courtesy - Sugar and spice by Radhika



Ingredients

  • All Purpose Flour (Maida)- 150 grams
  • Baking Powder - 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda - ½ tsp
  • Salt - ½ tsp
  • Mashed Bananas - 1 cup
  • Butter - ¼ cup
  • Caster Sugar - ⅓ cup
  • Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
  • Milk - 2-3 tbsp
  • Cocoa Powder - 2 tbsp

Method

Preheat oven to160C.Grease and flour a 7' round pan.
In a bowl, sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk butter until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes with an electric mixer. Add in the sugar and whisk for another 3-4 minutes. The mixture should turn fluffy and lighter in colour.
Add in the mashed bananas and vanilla essence. Mix until properly combined.
Mix the flour mix into this little by little,adding milk little by little if you feel the batter is turning dry.
Divide the batter into two equal parts. Leave one part as it is, and mix in the cocoa powder to the other.
To form the swirls, start by pouring 1-2 tablespoons of the plain banana batter in the centre of the cake tin.Next, pour 1-2 tablespoons of the chocolate batter right on it. Make sure you pour it in the centre.
Next, pour the plain banana batter and so on. Repeat until you use up all the batter.
Do not try to mix the batters,just keep pouring the batters alternatively.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cake turns golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack.
