My first post of 2017 n i wanted to share something fancy yet healthy as i strongly believe in eating healthy but delicious food !!
Chocolate is something we all Crave for so why not have it Healthy!! I thought of making an eggless Chocolate Banana cake with nuts which is a delight to indulge in without feeling guilty
To top it up i ave used ready Caramel Sauce to make it more fancier but u can omit it or replace it with a fresh fruit sauce like a strawberry or an orange!!
U can make it more healthy by using Whole Wheat flour if you like, the texture will be slightly different but it tastes super as well.
For the Chocolate Banana Walnut Cake
1 cup room temperature butter
1 cup brown sugar ( demerara)
1 3/ 4 cup All purpose flour/ maida / whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 very ripe bananas mashed
3 tbsp yoghurt
1 1/ 2 tsp baking powder
2tsp vanilla extract
3/ 4 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 200deg centigrade
Line a 9″pan or a bread mould with parchment paper
Mix the flour, cocoa n baking powder n sieve well
In a large bowl cream the butter very well with a hand mixer, add the brown sugar n beat again till it is well mixed, add the bananas n beat again for 3mins, add the vanilla extract n the yoghurt n beat well
Add the flour mixture to the butter banana mix little by little n beat until well incorporated into the wet ingredients
Add the walnuts in the mixture n mix lightly with a spatula
Pour the cake batter into your ready mould, top the batter with some walnuts n tap the mould to remove any air bubbles
Bake in the preheated oven for around 30 mins till a cake tester/ knife comes out clean, this is a dense cake so do check without fail as we don’t want a half baked cake
Let the cake cool completely n slice it n serve with caramel sauce/ chocolate sauce/ toffee sauce/ any fruit sauce that you prefer
U CAN substitute the All purpose flour with whole wheat flour but the texture will be a little different
So Bake this SCRUMPTIOUS cake n serve it to your Near n Dear ones!!!
Have A Healthy N Happy 2017!!
