I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches and I wanted to try out this delicious combo in a cake and also, I got tired of making banana breads whenever I had overripe bananas (which was practically every time I bought bananas ), so last time I made this cake with them. I have followed this recipe from here, but made a few changes to make it eggless and also left out the chocolate chips. There's no butter or any other dairy products used in this cake, so it's vegan too. The cake came out super moist and tasted so good, do try this cake if you like peanut butter and bananas..
Need To Have
- Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
- Ripe Bananas - 2 big ones
- Peanut Butter - 1/2 cup
- Brown Sugar - 2/3 cup
- Oil - 1/4 cup
- Flax Seeds Powder - 1 tablespoon
- Vanilla Extract - 1 teaspoon
- Baking Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
- Baking Soda - 1 teaspoon
- Cinnamon Powder - 1 teaspoon
Soak the flax seed powder in 3 tablespoons warm water for about 10 minutes. Blend together the bananas, peanut butter, soaked flax seed powder and oil, then add the brown sugar and blend it one more time.
Finally add the vanilla extract and cinnamon powder and blend it once more. Sift together the flour, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the blended banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix it well.
Pour it in a baking tray, lined with parchment paper and bake it at 190 C for 35 to 40 minutes, remove cool and cut the cake. Melt some peanut butter with a little milk, apply it on the pieces with a fork and enjoy.
The bananas and peanut butter, all have sugar, so the 2/3 cups of sugar was enough, but if the bananas are not overripe or the peanut butter does not have sugar in it, then increase accordingly, in case of a doubt, I taste the batter and then bake.
Just add enough milk to make a paste with the peanut butter, to keep it vegan, you can add some almond milk or soy milk instead of regular milk.
