Juicy banana cakewith Cream and in addition gluten free and without oil . Times have changed my dear ones, because some like the Cake with sugar the others sugar-free, with gluten, without gluten, with oil or margarine or completely without. Sometimes it’s almost exasperating and you really don’t know which new trend to chase anymore. Honestly, I prefer to test myself and try my way through all possible Dishes through. Just this Cake has surprised me again, because it comes so completely without the addition of oil and is still mega fluffy and juicy. What you can do with Bananas can do with bananas? Actually, I would be on my way to Austria right now and would be happy about a few days of skiing with friends, but unfortunately that will not happen. Tyrol decided yesterday to close all ski resorts and that means we all stay nice and well-behaved at home.
Juicy banana cake – without gluten and without oil
If I ever open a cafe, this cake will definitely be on the menu. Once again, it is made quickly and comes with few ingredients. If you happen to have two ripe Bananas lying around, then we can already get started. Vegetable milk, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, raw cane sugar, maple syrup, ripe bananas, apple pulp, buckwheat flour, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla.
As a topping I used once again the whipped cream from Bedda (*advertisingsince brand mention, but bought myself and no connection to the company). There were also fresh raspberries and blueberries. It’s finally berry season again, I’m thrilled!
Vegan egg substitute or egg alternatives
What should be wrong with a Egg be wrong? I’ve heard that a lot in the meantime, and I don’t want to elaborate on it. If you want to learn more about the production conditions of eggs and what disadvantages the consumption of eggs can bring, you can find a lot of useful information at PETA, for example. This much I can say for sure though, you don’t necessarily need eggs! It may be nostalgic to think of times gone by, when chickens still roamed free and humans snatched an egg here and there. Today you have many cheaper, animal and environmentally friendly ways to bake without egg. Here are my TOP TIPS for replacing eggs:
- Flaxseed egg , more information about it you can find here
- Ripe Bananas , mashed, provide a wonderful binding and sweetness in the dough
- Apple pulp or applesauce
- Aquafaba, more information you can find here … I use aquafaba rather as a substitute for beaten egg whites
- Chickpea flour
- Soy flour
- Ready-made products from different manufacturers, which I use very rarely. Do you have experience? Then feel free to share them in the comments below
Then it can start now with our delicious and juicy Banana cake . I hope you enjoy baking and of course about a review at the bottom of this page. If you post a picture, use the hashtag #veganevibes.
