Banana Cake with Chia Seeds and Oats (Eggless)

I have been baking cakes a long time now. Earlier I baked with eggs, then only with egg whites, but now I prefer eggless cakes and bakes. I just find the texture, flavour, and smell of the baked product improve if you skip the eggs altogether. The cakes are also less heavy and more easily digestible. What I love even more about this cake is that it is virtually grease free too! Yes - just one tablespoon of butter.

This is also one of the easiest cakes I have created. You can pretty much just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, one good whisk, and its good to in the oven. The final product is delicious and healthy. I loved the moist spongy texture that I got and the chia seeds added just the right amount of delicate crunch to this bake.

1 cup All Purpose flour
1/2 cup oats flour
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp butter
1 large very ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Sift together all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the apple sauce, buttermilk, vanilla extract, butter, and the mashed banana.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, mix well.
  4. Pour the mix into a prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  6. Cool the cake in the tin for 15 minutes and then on a wire rack.
Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!
