One of the demands of the kids for this year’s Bakeathon was to bake a chocolate cake. And I chose this Eggless Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake Recipe as an attempt to get Lil Dude eat bananas!!

I served it this evening without mentioning anything but the kids found out about the banana! While every one else relished the cake, Lil Dude maed a face telling me that he could taste the bananas and hence he does not want to eat a second bite!

I silently accepted my defeat and begged and cajoled him to eat at least a slice. It was only after I garnished his slice with a handful of chocolate chips did he unwillingly eat his slice. He made sure to make me understand that he won;t be eating this hereafter!

Hoping that kiddo will overcome his aversion towards fruits and now sharing this easy bake with you all.

I followed this recipe and have used whole wheat flour and karumbu sakkarai /cane sugar here.

The cake is moist and very flavorful.Do try it out, I am sure you will enjoy each bite!

Note:

  • I used whole wheat flour and cane sugar. You can use All purpose flour / Maida and sweetener of your choice.
  • The original recipe uses only 1/4 cup of milk. I added another 1/2 cup as the mixture was too dry.
  • The same cake can be baked in a round / Square / Bundt pan.
  • Adding nuts is optional.
  • The sweetness was just right for the mentioned quantity of sugar. Add more if you prefer or drizzle some chocolate sauce before serving.
  • Check the doneness by inserting the skewer in the middle of the loaf tin. The narrow edges of the pan get done faster.
  • Cool the cake completely before cutting.
  • Store in an air tight container.

  1. Poor Kid really does not like banana! The taste of banana in bakes is quite distinct, one of the reasons we all love it. Addition of chocolate makes it even better.

  2. Chocolate and bananas are a match made in heaven. Moms need to find new ways of sneaking in fruits to the little ones, PJ ! This loaf looks divine to me as am a total banana bread lover

  3. Kids are so picky and stubborn 🙂 Your son at least gave it a try, my picky son will run a mile away if he was served something he doesn’t like. Your banana chocolate cake sounds absolutely delicious – my kids will love this.

  4. I am crazy about getting the perfect banana bread texture and somehow not able to give up on it. Be it plain or chocolate, all are making me want to bookmark for later. Guess this is just one for your lil one, else he mostly enjoys all right?..that’s fine I guess…When I read this, I always remember how the other two of mine try forcing my younger one to eat bread…we just have to leave it..:(

  5. Ah PJ , I can so relate to this. My son also hates banana and when I add in cake he is like I can smell, though he has to eat the banana but can understand. The cake looks so tempting with all those chocolate chips and that awesome chocolate colour.
