Whole Wheat Banana Eggless Cake

Baked something after a really long time and was super happy with the soft cake that came out. Plus, I used Jaggery in this instead of sugar. Totally amazing and a must try..

WHEAT BANANA JAGGERY CAKE

Ingredients:
3/4th cup + 1 tsp Whole wheat flour
1/3 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
A pinch of salt
2 ripe Bananas
A pinch Clove powder (Or ginger powder)
A pinch Cinnamon powder
1/4 cup Light cooking oil
1/3 cup Jaggery (run it in the mixer once to remove lumps)
2 tbsps yogurt
Assorted dry fruits and nuts

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Microwave the bananas with the skin for about 3 mins on high. The skin will brown and the pulp will soften. De-skin and mash the bananas well.

2. Sieve together the wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and a pinch of salt. As we are using whole wheat flour, sieve at least twice or thrice to loosen up the flour.

3. In another bowl, whisk together oil and jaggery till well blended. Add the mashed bananas and whisk again. Now add 1 tbsp yogurt and mix.

4. Gradually add the dry flour mix in batches, cut and fold gently, repeat till all the flour is added in. Gently mix till no loose flour is visible and leave no lumps. If the batter is thick add the the remaining 1 tbsp yogurt as well.

5. Quickly toss 3/4th of the dry fruits and nuts in the 1 tsp loose flour till well-coated. Add to the batter and mix in. Coating the nuts in flour will prevent them from sinking in the batter.

6. Transfer to a greased loaf/cake tin. Sprinkle remaining dry nuts (non-flour coated) on top.

7. Bake at 180 deg C for about 30 mins. I used the microwave, and mine doesnt have 180 deg C. So I baked at 170 C for 6 mins. (Or till toothpick comes out clean)

8. Remove and let cool for about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to the serving dish. Serve warm or cold.
