Hello everyone

My son is too fond of bananas. This is one of the very few things he like to eat, but sometimes he start doing nakhrey in eating these too. And as a result I end up with some over ripe bananas in hand. Generally I use these bananas in baking banana breads. This time tried to add some more flavours to make it more interesting and flavour full. As everyone in my family is fan of coffee flavor snacks. So made banana choco coffee cake , it turned out so soft, moist and yummy that no one can resist eating another serving. Best part of it is , that it's eggless too. You can make it any time you have over ripe bananas in hand , and don't want to throw it. It's vegan too, if you don't add milk yogurt and replace with soya yogurt. Easiest recipe with handful of ingredients and result is awesome delicious beautiful stripped cake.
Stepwise recipe is given below. Do try and don't forget to share your experience with me.


Serves: 4-5 
Time: 50 mins


2 cup all purpose flour/ chapatti flour 
2 big bananas, over ripe
1/4 cup thick yogurt 
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water
1/4 cup unsweetened  cocoa powder


First preheat the oven at 180°c.

Mix flour, baking powder  and salt together, keep aside for later use.

Add baking soda to yogurt water mix and give a quick stir. Keep it aside for 5-10 minutes.

Now mix mashed banana, vanilla essence, sugar and oil together till sugar dissolves and mixture become smooth and fluffy.

Now add yogurt mix to it and fold gently.

Mix dry and wet mixtures together and fold to get lumpless  batter for cakes. It will be little thicker but add water after dividing it . As coffee mix is already going to dilute it.

Now divide the batter in three equal parts and add cocoa powder to one, coffee mix in another and  third one plain.

* Add some water in Cocoa and plain  batter to get same consistency of all the batters. 

* Consistency of batter should be like idli batter.

In a greased and dusted baking loaf pan , pour one big spoon of one batter length wise and tap the pan to spread .then pour  one big spoon of other batter over it and again tap the pan and do it alternatively till batter finished. 

Then bake it for 35- 40 mins. But keep an eye after 30 mins on it as baking time may vary oven to oven.
I baked on convection mode for 42 mins.

Check it with knife or skewer by inserting in middle of cake ,for doneness. If knife/skewer comes out clean then cake Is done otherwise bake for some more minutes.

Let it sit for 5-10 mins then invert on wire rack and let it cool completely.

* You can add more sugar if like. As I kept mild but try it first, it's perfect for tea time snacks with perfect sweetness.

Its so soft and moist cake that you cannot have just one piece.

* You can easily double or half the ingredients as per your requirement and availability.

Enjoy this scrumptious Cake and do share your experience with me. Your valuable comments and suggestions are always welcomed, they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
