Banana Oats Breakfast Cake | Eggless Baking

Banana Cake

Banana Bread or Banana Cake is a favorite in our home. I bake it at least once a month - and have many variations of  this delicious cake on my blog. I have baked Banana Cake with raising, with nuts, multi-grain flours, with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips - the list goes on! This latest is a wonderful Breakfast Cake as it is made with oats. Its dense, healthy, and nutritious and packs the power you need in a breakfast food. I love baking this Cake on weekends, for road trips, or to take along on hikes. At home I just warm a glass of milk and enjoy the cake with it. For the road I pack individual slices in cling film and add them to our snack packs. They are perfect with a hot glass of tea after a good long walk.

Eggless Banana Cake

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats, old fashioned
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup brown sugar
11/4 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon powder

  1. Sift the flour, oats,  baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon powder together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, blend together the mashed bananas with the yogurt and brown sugar and oil.
  3. Add the dry ingredients into the wet quarter cup at a time.
  4. Allow the batter to sit in the bowl for 15 minutes.
  5. Pour the same into a well greased cake pan.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for 30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  7. Remove from oven and cool in the pan, then remove gently.
  8. Enjoy with milk or orange juice.
Good to Know
  • This is a great cake for breakfast. Warm a little and drizzle with honey before serving.
  • Add a quarter cup of raisins or dates into the batter to make for a more power packed breakfast.
  • For an Indian touch, replace the cinnamon in this recipe with a half teaspoon of ground cardamom.
  • This cake does very well for a dessert too. Warm and enjoy with vanilla ice cream.
