Banana and Chocolate Chip Flower Cake # BreadBakers

When Julie gave this month's Bread Bakers' theme -  Mother’s Day or May Day inspired bread.  My mother's banana cake came to my mind which she often made for us, whenever there were overly ripe bananas.  

This is such a moist and soft cake, easy to make and a best way to use overly ripe bananas. Made this for our evening tea party.

2 Cups All purpose flour
1 Teaspoon  Baking powder
1 Teaspoon Baking soda
A Pinch of Salt
1.1/4 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Cup Mashed Banana

2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons Yogurt
1/2 Cup Chocolate chips


Preheat the oven at  190  degrees

Sieve together flour baking powder baking soda add salt and caster sugar mix well. Add chocolate chips to it and keep aside

Take a bowl beat together egg,  yogurt and  oil  well for about 4 to 5 minutes,  add mashed bananas beat them again for 2 to 3 minutes.  Add dry flour mixture, little at a time and gently fold it until all the flour is incorporated.

  Pour into greased silicone mold and bake at  for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool it completely and then un-mold it.

This is so soft and moist... enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee.Labels : Cakes, Banana, Chocolate, Bread Bakers

  1. Hello Sneha, You give me a reason to use the bananas in my kitchen. Your cake looks delicious. And loved the flower shaped cake.

  2. How cool that you had a flower cake mold! I wish I could have a piece of that!!

  3. What a great idea to bake the banana bread in a rose mold. So easy and so pretty.

  4. I love your cake mold. Banana cakes are what I often bake especially when I have to make eggless versions. Love your generous amount of chocolate chips.
