For most of us, Cakes are too good to pass but also comes with a load of guilt. This Irresistible Banana Cake recipe, I hope is going to change your opinion or at least reduce your guilt. What is special about this recipe is that it took no added oil in preparation. Not to mention, it is vegan like all my recipes.
So you are looking at a cake with no all-purpose flour, no cholesterol and best of all, no added oil. Zero animal cruelty. Zero Cholesterol. Zero compromises in taste.
There is absolutely no compromise in taste and my family can vouch for that. That’s because there is a healthy alternative for Oil, butter, and all-purpose flour. The fats in coconut milk together will a little bit of applesauce, take care of all the work in binding the cake together. I have tried this trick in almond butter muffins as well.
You have to try it to believe the decadent nature of this recipe. Check out my video and photos for visual inspiration 🙂
