Eggless Chocolate Banana Cake

I had bookmarked a recipe for Vegan Chocolate Banana Cake from Madhuram's site. I did some variation from the recipe given on her site, so it is not vegan anymore. First time, I had prepared this cake for our girl's get together. I was very apprehensive about using banana then. My hubby didnot like the idea much, so I told him that this cake was not for him and he gave me a nasty look. Still, I baked the cake and my house was filled with the smell of baked bananas. I thought it was a flop and didnot even dare to taste it. Next day, I tasted it and believe me, it was delicious!! After, cooling down, the smell of banana had vanished. It was a great hit with my friends too but sadly I couldnot save a peice for my hubby!
My hubby had not been a chocolate cake fan, but after I had baked one for Valentine's Day,  he had been asking me for another. So, I baked this Chocolate Banana Cake yesterday and we had this with vanilla iceream. He ate it with delight and guess what? Till now I havenot told him that it has bananas in it.
Well, now coming to the recipe for 'Eggless Chocolate Banana Cake', you will need:

1 cup AP flour.
¾ cup sugar
½ cup butter.
1 banana mashed and pureed.
1 tbsp chocolate powder.
3 tbsp cocoa powder.
½ tsp baking powder.
1 tsp baking soda.
¼ cup milk.
¼ cup aerated drink.
½ tsp vanilla essence

Process:

Preheat the oven at 180 C for 15 minutes. Grease a cake tin (8”x 8”x 2.5”) and dust it with flour. In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients together and mix. Sieve it so that the mixture in uniform and there are no lumps in it.

In another bowl add the melted butter and beat in the sugar. Stir well for two minutes. Add the banana puree and beat nicely for a couple of minutes with a hand blender or wooden spoon. Add vanilla essence and milk and beat again till everything is evenly mixed. Now add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, slowly and keep rotating to form a batter. Add the aerated drink and mix for another couple of minutes. Pour it in a pre greased tin and bake it in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes at 180 C till nicely raised and a skewer pricked in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Enjoy!
