whole wheat Banana bread - Slurpy Platter

Initially when I wanted to bake a cake with whole wheat flour apprehension loomed all over me. Because I failed at it 5 times, once cuz the batter was too thick, the cake was dense, the next time the consistency of the batter was too thin, the following time something else happened and I was determined to get it right. SO finally when I tried it a few months ago, there came a perfectly moist, super soft and just out of the dreams Banana bread which I sent to my friends in Shimogga and a few here in Blr.

I have used brown sugar in this recipe, but you can also use liquid jaggery/ jaggery powder if you prefer. I also added a handful of muesli and oats as a streusel, plus some chocolate chips to make it more exciting.

You can play around with the combination of your choice by adding chia seeds, pumpkin seeds,walnuts and almonds.. whatever you fancy.

This recipe takes 45 minutes to make it including the prepping up process, so if you have a guest/friend coming in you can make this in a short notice. Also, you can use the bread as a base for trifles and puddings. I will share more details on that soon.

Recipe Notes

You can bake this cake even in the pressure cooker, by using salt/sand as a base in the cooker. Close the lid without the whistle and bake for 40 minutes under medium flame.

You can skip the brown sugar completely and use honey (1 cup) instead.
