Eggless Banana Cake-Bread

My son loves bananas so I always have them on hand, so much that I also have a collection in the freezer that we just didn’t get to in time. As I prepared myself to make a loaf of bread with them, I realized that I was missing eggs. I found this amazing vegan recipe online and I with I had found it sooner! I used a cake pan as its not as deep and cooks thoroughly while keeping a solid, yet springy texture that eggs usually provide. I can use this recipe as a cake and top it with cream cheese frosting, and it’s perfect to use as a baby led weaning recipe, especially early on when you’re not ready to try eggs. Here she is:

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 medium sized ripe or over ripe bananas
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup coconut oil or sunflower oil or any vegetable oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar or regular granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 to 3 pinches or ⅛ tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1 to 2 tbsp sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a cake pan with some coconut oil.
  3. Mash the bananas well or puree them with a hand blender with the sugar.
  4. Add the oil, vanilla, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder to the banana and mix well.
  5. Sit the flour with the baking soda, baking powder, salt directly in the bowl containing the mashed bananas.
  6. Fold the sifted flour in really well as you want the whole bread mixture to be one and mixed evenly.
  7. Lastly add the sunflower seeds and fold these.
  8. Pour the bread mixture into the pan.
  9. Bake for 35 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean.
  10. Once warm or cool remove the bread from the pan.
