Eggless Multigrain Banana Chocolate Cake

Can u believe this soft and moist chocolate cake is truly healthy and nutritious???..Absolutely i have used whole wheat pastry flour, brown rice flour,stone ground cornmeal,all purpose flour corn starch,rolled oats, ragi flour, with all these flours needless to say that this cake is definitely a healthy and guilt free cake to enjoy anytime..With banana puree, butter, creamy greek yogurt and flax seed meal, this cake turned out really moist, soft and spongy...This cake vanished within few hours coz everyone at home loved these spongy cake when they were still warm and the aroma came from the oven while baking this cake, tempted everyone and i can say that almost everyone were waiting to enjoy once they come out the oven....I used chocolate to cover up dark colour of the cake coz of multigrain flour particularly ragi flour coz my lil ones wont like that much the colour of the ragi flour and making out as chocolate cake works out truly prefect and none will notice anything,this is the way i feed sometimes my little family with healthy stuffs...Am sending this spongy cake to Madhu's Whole Grain Baking Event -Rice & to my own event Hearts For St.Valentine's Day..


1/2cup Whole wheat pastry flour
1cup Brown rice flour
1/2cup All purpose flour
1/2cup Rolled oats
1/2cup Cornmeal

2nos Bananas( pureed)
1cup Greek yogurt
1tbsp Flax seed meal +3tbsp water
1tbsp Baking powder
1cup Water

Preheat the oven to 300F, grease a mould with butter or can use very well silicion moulds, i didnt greased my silicon heart shaped mould... Beat the butter with sugar and brown packed sugar until they turns soft and creamy...meanwhile mix the whole wheat pastry flour,brown rice flour, cornmeal, all purpose flour, rolled oats, cornstarch, ragi flour, baking powder in a bowl and keep aside...Melt the chocolate in microwave oven for 5minutes in high with a cup of water and turn them thin chocolate sauce...

Add the greek yogurt and banana puree to the creamy butter mixture and beat until they turns soft...make a paste with flax seed meal and water, add this flax seed meal paste to the butter-puree mixture and add gradually the chocolate sauce, beat for a while..finally add the dry ingredients, mix slowly with spatula or wooden spoon, dont over mix..


Pour the cake batter to the mould and bake in middle rack for 35-40minutes until a skewer inserted come out clean...Let them cool..
