Servings: 1 pound cake, 4-5
Cooking Time: 45-50 minutes
- 1.5 cups whole wheat flour (aata)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 2 large or 3 medium banana
- 3/4 cup brown sugar ( you can use normal sugar as well)
- 2/3 cup any neutral flavor oil (i have used peanut oil)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp oil for greasing the cake pan
- 2 tbsp whole wheat flour for dusting the pan
- 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Sieve the flour in a deep bowl, add baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt in it.
Then mix it nicely. Our dry ingredients are ready.
In another bowl take brown sugar, add oil and vanilla extract in it.
Take riped banana and mash it nicely with a fork, you can also use a blender to mash the bananas. Add the banana puree to the sugar and oil mixture.
Now mix all the wet ingredients nicely till sugar is completely dissolved. Our wet ingredients are ready.
Now add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix it nicely. Add milk to make a smooth batter. There should not be any lumps. Do not over beat the batter.
Add chocolate chips and gently mix it in the batter. Cake batter is completely ready to be baked.
Pre heat oven for about 10 minutes at 180 degree celsius or 350 degree fahrenheit. Prepare a cake pan (you can use any cake pan of your choice,I have used a round cake pan) by greasing with oil and dusting with flour nicely. Pour the batter in the cake pan and tap it well. We tap the cake pan after pouring the batter so that if there is any air bubbles in the batter,it will escape.
Now sprinkle some chocolate chips on top, it is completely optional. If you want you can add some nuts too like walnuts, pecans or cashews.
Now bake the cake for about 40-45 minutes. After 35 minutes check the cake by inserting a clean knife or tooth pick at multiple places and if it comes out clean this means cake has been baked properly.If not then bake it more for about 5 minutes and then check it again.
When cake has been baked completely, take it out from the oven safely and let it cool for about 10 mins in the pan and then unmould it on the wire rack and let it cool completely. Now you can cut it and serve with hot tea or coffee or as it is. This is a perfect tea cake. This cake is super delicious and trust me friends it is irresistible. You just can’t have one. Store this cake in an air tight container and it is good for 4-5 days. Do try this friends and please let me know how you like it. Enjoy !!
