Can I use buttermilk in making banana cakes like other cakes?
Try it out Nidhi. Let me know how did your experiment go.
Can I use coconut milk instead?
Absolutely, try it out.
Sonia Ji …How I want to try all your recipes, trust me all of them
All the best, Divya.
I have tried some of ur recipes which came out really well. A big thanks to you.
I have one query though. Can I use musturd oil in this recipe?
Gurneet, I would not recommend using mustard oil as it will leave its pungent and prominent flavor in the bake.
Mam, I tried this recipe today. First of all I had to add double the milk as mentioned, but reading another comment’s answer as u said the flour quality maybe different. Secondly I baked in convection mode for atleast 40 mins at 160 degree ( my microwave convection achieves 160 deg when it shows 180 deg on panel ) but still my toothpick is not coming out clean..what can be the reason I tried to make batter of pouring consistency..can too thin a batter be the reason for increase in baking time..in ur video seeinv the batter it seems my batter was thin…
When the batter has more moisture content, obviously it will take longer time to evaporate. so if your batter was runny, then bake it for little longer time until it passes the toothpick test.
I tried baking this came but it was quite thick and I had to add another 50ml of milk. Can this be the reason for my cakes of being drier side as I end up adding little more milk to make it pouring consistency.
Namita, every flour has different absorption capacity. Moreover if bananas are not properly ripe then also you will end up adding more milk. So that is absolutely fine.
Hey Sonia !
I have made this cake today and it’s really nice .. however it has little chewiness . What should I add to ensure that it’s leww chewy.. can u pls let me know the exact measurement of banana purée as measurement varies with the size of banana .
You can add 2 tbs of Cornflour to reduce the chewiness.
The approximate of banana puree should be 170 gm.
I tried this cake and it was lovely. Your recipes are really easy and healthy.
Thank you Carol.
I have tried banana cakes from other recipes and mostly every one includes egg. Please help me understand how we are excluding eggs in this recipe. I am new to baking and would really like to know what exactly is the use of egg while baking and when / how should we include/exclude it . Sorry if its a long question!!
First of all, don’t say sorry for any question. I love to answer. So feel free to ask whenever in doubt.
Now coming to your question, Banana itself is a replacement of egg. So in any recipe where banana is there, you can easily skip eggs. Eggs have a different purpose in different recipes. In few recipes eggs used as a binder, in few to give richness and in few to make the cake rise. With practice you will understand all these things. So keep experimenting and sharing with us. I am there to help.
Hi..can I replace oil with butter?
And if I want to use maida, what will b the measurement
Your title shud be …” Nobody bake like me ” can’t tell you your recipe is so easy to follow …yet delicious …I am loving it ….
Thanks a bunch, Moushmi. You just made my day.
Please share recipe of strawberry cake with fresh strawberry … in this recipe may I replace bana with fresh strawberry grinded??
I will not suggest until I do a successful experiment at my end. however, if you experiment, share your results so that I can learn from it.
Trying this today. Can I add butter scotch essence instead of cinnamon powder?
Also can I add flax seeds powder in to this?
Use max of 2 tbs flaxseeds powder
Feel free to replace the essence.
