Top tips

  • Use overripe banana as it has natural sweetness, if the banana is less sweet increase the quantity of sugar if the banana is more sweet then decrease the amount of sugar, check the sweetness by tasting a drop of cake batter and add sugar or any sweetener accordingly.
  • Flax egg can be substituted with chia egg. (1 tablespoon chia seeds+3 tablespoon water)
  • Sugar can be substituted with powdered jaggery, coconut sugar, maple syrup or brown sugar.
  • Don’t over bake check the bread after 20-25 of baking using toothpick or skewer, if it is baked remove it from oven.
  • Cinnamon powder can be substituted with pumpkin spice or nutmeg.
  • For extra crunch you can add walnuts, pecan or any dry fruits in the batter but make sure to toss it in the flour to prevent sinking.
  • If you don’t have cake mould use aluminium foil loaf mould, it is disposable and I have used the same in the recipe.
  • Don’t store it for more than 3 days.
