I love banana cake or banana bread, especially if it is moist. Actually I do not like recipes that have mashed bananas in them. So, I avoided tasting banana cake for many years, but when I did I simply fell in love with it πŸ™‚

Makes: 10 large pieces

Preparation time: 10 mins

Baking time: 40-50 mins

Dry Ingredients:

Whole wheat flour – 1.5 cups

Semolina/suji – Β½ cup

Baking powder – 1 tsp

Salt – Β½ tsp

Brown/ordinary sugar – 1 cup

Nuts – 2 tbsp (cranberry, walnuts, almonds, finely chopped, optional)

Flax seed powder – 2 tbsp (optional)

Wet Ingredients:

Yogurt/buttermilk – Β½ cup

Milk – ΒΌ cup

Oil/butter – ΒΌ cup

Ripe bananas – 3 (mashed)

Vanilla extract – 1 tsp



  1. Combine all the dry ingredients and wet ingredients in two separate bowls.
  2. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and keep folding the batter gently.
  3. Grease a cake tin with oil/butter and also spray little flour in it so that the cake doesn’t stick.
  4. Pour the cake batter into the tin and tap it gently.
  5. Bake it in a pre-heated oven at 190Β°C for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven, let it cool and transfer to a serving plate.
