This cake was due for a very long time. Every time I try to make this cake I will run out of one or more ingredients. Most of the time the missing ingredient would be banana without which I would not do any justice to this recipe. After a very long time, I got hold of all the necessary ingredients & successfully baked this low fat delicious banana cake.

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Make sure the baking powder is well blended with other ingredients. In another bowl add the vegetable oil, orange extract & peeled banana & mash the banana finely using potato masher or by hand.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients along with the dry ones. If the dough looks stiff add 1/4 cup of milk.
  3. Pour the mixture into a greased baking pan.
  4. Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees & bake the cake mixture for about 30 - 45 minutes. Check if the cake is done by inserting a toothpick on it to see if it comes out clean. If the toothpick comes out clean the cake is done. If not, you will have to bake for few more minutes. Once the cake is done, take it out of the oven & let it cool in a cooling rack.

    This cake can also be made into muffins. You will need to fill 3/4th of the muffin cups & bake them. It is a wholesome breakfast filled with fruits & nuts.
