Banana choco cake

I wanted to make a healthy yet delicious banana chocolate cake without using sugar or dairy and using a mix of different gluten-free flour. That's how I invented this recipe and the cake turned out to be really delicious. If you dont have a problem with using all-purpose flour(maida) you can adjust the recipe accordingly. 

Ingredients:

 

1/2 cup Jowar(Sorghum) flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup corn flour (cornmeal)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup jaggery powder (adjust according to sweetness preference)
1/2 cup chopped dates (about 8-10 dates, pitted and chopped)
1/2 cup plant-based milk / water
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Preparation:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together jowar flour, whole wheat flour, oat flour, corn flour (cornmeal), cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

3. In another bowl, mix mashed bananas, jaggery powder, chopped dates, milk, melted butter or oil, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips if using.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

7. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.



 

Once cooled, slice and serve.Adding apple cider vinegar can enhance the texture and rise of the cake, especially when combined with baking soda. Adjust the sweetness and other ingredients according to your taste preferences. Enjoy your Chocolate Banana Cake with the added nutritional benefits of jowar, whole wheat, oat flour, and corn flour!
