How to make Eggless Ragi Banana Chocolate Cake Recipe-Vegan Options
To begin making the Chocolate Banana Finger Millet Cake Recipe, first get all the ingredients ready.
Next, preheat the oven to 180 C and grease and flour a large loaf pan or a springform pan or a bundt pan.
If your recipe asks for 3 eggs, measure 9 tablespoons of flax meal along with 6 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let the mixture rest for about 15 minutes. This process of resting helps the flax meal mixture develop a gelatinous consistency similar to eggs.
Sift the flours, cocoa powder, along with baking powder and salt. Keep aside. I like to double sift the flours as it incorporates a good amount of air.
Gradually beat in the flour mixture and finally the bananas. Beat until all the ingredients are well combined.
Pour the cake batter into the greased pan, place it into the oven to bake for about 35 to 45 minutes until a tester when inserted inside comes out clean.
Once the chocolate banana cake is baked, allow it to cool for a little bit before you can cut into slices.
