BANANA OAT CAKE





SAPNO KE GHAR KI CHATT PE HAIN TAARE
TOPHIYON KI DEEWARON PE LATKE GUBBARE
GHAR KE UJIYARE SO JA RE
DADDY TERE JAAGE TU SO JA RE !!!!!!!!! 



On this special occasion of Fathers Day I would like to thank you, PAPA,  for everything you did for me. Thanks for being a great companion in the morning tea sessions where we discuss anything and everything , right from my latest crushes, my failures,my future plans ,to my smallest pains I felt in my life.I am grateful that I have not only got a father in you but a true honest friend who has been always there for me.This dessert is for all the love and sweetness you filled in my life.

Papa love cakes. The only problem is he does not like store bought ones as it has lot of icings and he also does not like the one Mom makes as she still make it in the COOKER, the cake does not have that scrumptious brown crust. So this pushed me to get into baking a cake which my Dad will love. 

I would call it a healthy version of the banana cake. I have used wheat and oat flour instead of white flour. It still came out soft and moist which is a win-win situation. Although it did not raise as much.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Oat Flour 
  • 2 overripe Bananas
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1/2cup Sugar
  • 1teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • A pinch of Salt


METHOD

  • Preheat the oven at 350 F ( 180 C) and grease the baking pan. I used the 9" standard bread loaf pan and rather than greasing it I lined the baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl mash the ripe bananas. Add sugar and using a hand blender blend well.
  • Now add butter, salt, and vanilla extract, blend again to make a creamy mixture
  • Then sieve the whole wheat flour, oat flour, baking powder and baking soda. 
  • Fold in the dry ingredients with wet ingredients well.
  • Pour the prepared batter in the pan.
  • Tap the pan to evenly distribute the mixture
  • Top it with 2 tablespoons of rolled oats and press it gently on the batter.
  • Place the loaf pan in the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a fork or toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. If the cake is not ready you can keep it for another 5 minutes, but keep an eye on it.
  • Take the pan out of the oven and let it cool down. 
  • Cut into slices and enjoy with a warm cup of tea or coffee.
