Banana Rava Cake


Posted on February 6th, 2009

I bought lot of bananas and they were sitting idle in our counter top. They were ripe enough that we wanted finish them off. As I was surfing the net to find recipes using bananas, I came across the lovely “Aayis Recipes”, where I found the Eggless Banana Cake with Rava! The recipe sounded so easy that I wanted to try it immediately. I made few changes to the recipe. Here is my version of the Banana Rava Cake!

Banana Rava Cake

Banana Rava Cake

Ingredients:

Ripe bananas 2
Rava 1 cup
Baking powder 1 tsp
Cardamom powder ½ tsp
Milk 2 cups
Sugar ½ cup
Cashewnuts 1 tsp
Chocolate chips ½ tsp

Preparation Method:

  • Roast the rava till it turns slightly brown.
  • Soak the rava in milk for 2 hours.
  • Nicely mash the bananas.
  • Add mashed bananas and sugar to the soaked rava.
  • Now add baking powder, cardamom powder, cashews and the chocolate chips.
  • Preheat the oven at 350F for 10 mins.
  • Take a baking dish and slightly apply ghee to it.
  • Pour the cake batter in the baking dish and slide it in the oven.
  • Bake at 350F for about 35 mins.
  • After around 30 mins, pierce a knife at the center of the cake.
  • If it comes out clean, then the cake is done!

The Banana Rava Cake tasted yummy.

Tip: You can also use coconut milk for soaking the rava.

    This banana rava cake was very tasty ! When Anu was baking this cake I was initially skeptical about how it would taste. However it came out very nice and the chocolate chips added to the flavor. It was so yummy that we finished the cake immediately !!

      35 mins for baking,
      5 mins for preparing the cake batter…

      On the whole, the recipe should be ready within 3 hrs :-)

    Hi,
    Regarding soaking in milk, do you keep it outside for 2 hrs? Can we soak it in cold milk or need to warm it?
    I am planning to try it out now :)
    Thanks
