Low Fat Banana Cake Eggless Recipe @

Banana cake is so popular and needs no introduction. Each of you have a favorite recipe of this cake. I too had tried various recipe of this treat with added chocolate, oat or chopped nuts.

The recipe below is a low fat and very light. It uses only 2 tablespoons of oil and water to moisten the batter. The best part is you don't  even  need to take out your mixer or food processor to bake one. It is so easy for anyone  to make.  If your banana is already sweet, do adjust the sugar to your preference. For natural sweetness and strong banana flavor, use ripen banana. This recipe can easily be doubled.

This fantastic cake is sheer indulgent with very little saturated fat, you can enjoy without guilt. Most importantly so fluffy and delicious!
