Baking Eggless Banana Bread

... Taking inspiration from fellow bloggers.......

My Father is a strict Vegetarian. Not even eggs.... I remember in my childhood, he would never eat my birthday cake... I used to feel bad , but I always cheered up when he would let me have what would have been his piece of cake! But in those tender years, I could never figure out how Dad felt happy on his Birthday! Mom would make a traditional sweet and that was celebration? Well, well, grown ups are funny!
Well, this is not for a birthday, neither is it a cake, but I'm sure Dad will love this EGGLESS Banana Bread. I picked up this recipe from Nandita's Saffron Trail.
We got the bananas from Von's.. and I kept watching when they would be fully ripe and soft, spotted but not black.... and today morning after talking to Mum and Dad, I felt a wave of memories sweep over me.... This one is for you Dad.


11/2 Cup Flour ( I took 1 cup All purpose and 1/2 cup wheat flour)
1 cup sugar
3 Ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup butter
1/2 tsp. cardamom powder
1 tsp (French) vanilla essence
Pinch salt
2 tbsp Milk

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash the bananas. Melt the butter. With a wooden spatula, mix the melted butter in the mashed bananas. Add the sugar,v.essence, milk, baking soda and mix well.Last, add the flour- mix.
Pour into a greased baking loaf pan. Bake for about 45- 50 mins. check if baked by inserting a toothpick / knife, if it comes out clean, the bread is baked.

Cool on the rack. cut into slices and serve warm ( I could not wait to get my greedy hands on it! it was smelling heavenly!! I gobbled up a piece - just to check the taste you know!!)

  8. forgot to add that over last 3 days, consecutively, i m making ur reciepies kothimbir wadi, dabeli and paav bhaji.. They r turning out to be extra special. Little things that u hv suggested make a difference like white sesame on kothimbir wadi or garlic in pav bhaji.. I m also becoming a fan of urs..

  9. Hi Himagauri, THANK U SO MUCH DEAR!!! U REALLY made my day... weekend! Big hug to u!!
    For chole, I usually use a recipe that I have followed for a very long time... do check my ost on Alu tikki & choley chaa http://acookatheart.blogspot.com/2007/05/khatarnaak-chaat.html
    The chole I make turn out well and are moderately spicy. Hope it uits u !! My hubby is not a big fan of Rajma, so I leave it out :( but i guess the gravy base will be the same.

  14. Tried this today as we ran out of eggs and had two old bananas. Made a bit less as I didnt have three bananas and it came out pretty good. YUM. Dont know what the eggs would have added to it. Anyways, thanks!! There is none left....

  15. i jus discovered baking and experimented on wholemeal bread and almond cookies. both turned out good. my aunt swore that its not gonna be possible to make banana bread without eggs. but being an indian veggie, i knew someone else also would have done it. urs is the easiest version i've come across so far. hope this turns out jus as good. thanks

  16. I made this bread now and its tastes great. it was also very quick and easy to make. I don't eat eggs and was very happy to find a recipe that suits me. I wonder though how it is going to taste when it gets cold, I am hoping it won't be too dry.
    Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  17. hi im planning to make this bread soon but i have a silly question as i have never before used ovens. using it for the 1st time in usa. u said to preheat at 350f but how much approx time it takes for the oven to be preheated? my oven has no indicator to show whether it has been preheated (i dont know whether an indicator exists or no in the 1st place). secondly after i put the mixture in the oven shud i continue baking the cake at 350f?

  27. I know this is an old post, but I wanted you to know I have this recipe bookmarked and use it all the time. Thank you for posting it. It allows me to use up overripe bananas, and it gives my husband something he can enjoy with the rest of our family, as he is allergic to egg and dairy. I have added everything from peanut butter to pecans to oatmeal to flax seed, and the recipe holds up to all the changes. Thanks again.
