The Best Banana Chocolate Chunk Cake | Eggless Baking

Eggless Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Three months ago in the throes of packing up to move, I baked a delicious cake. Yes, it was a banana cake, but this time I added a good cup of large chocolate chunks to it!! Banana and chocolate are undoubtedly made for each other and I generally like to pair dark chocolate with banana when I bake. Some of the recipes that are a favorite at my home are banana chocolate chip muffins, banana chocolate cookies and banana chocolate smoothie. The latter I always make with Ghirardelli chocolate sauce, mmmmm:)

This is an eggless cake and does not require yogurt or milk for moisture. Almost all of the moisture in this cake comes from the bananas. I used three bananas to make this cake. This may seem a lot but it only adds to the flavor of the cake. Make sure you don't skimp on the chocolate chunks either!!

Eggless Banana Cake

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup atta (Indian chappati flour)
11/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 large bananas (very ripe and mashed
1 cup dark chocolate chunks

  1. Beat the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until they are light and fluffy.
  2. Add the mashed bananas, baking powder, baking soda, and the salt.
  3. Next beat in the flours until you get a thick and creamy batter.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  5. Pour the batter into a prepared cake pan.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 35-40 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. Enjoy with a large glass of milk or for dessert with vanilla ice cream

  1. I am truly drooling at that cake. I always love banana cakes and that with wholewheat and chocolate chunks... bookmarked!

  2. Hello Aparna, A lovely blog post after a long long time. So yummy! I absolutely agree with you that banana and chocolate make a great combination. Have made so many banana cakes and quick breads but still every time I see a banana cake recipe, I am tempted to try out one and this looks great....definitely worth trying.
