Eggles,Butterless & Sugarless Dried Figs & Banana Walnut Cake

Dried figs are excellent source of minerals like calcium,copper,potassium,iron and many more. In fact they tastes fantabulous in shakes,in bakes or just add them in salads. Although dried figs are available throughout the year, we get them abundantly during the xmas time here.Dried figs are sweet and often eaten as a favourite snack between meals. Adding dried figs into your daily diet can help you to keep your body's everyday nutrient needs. If you have a sweet tooth instead of consuming extra fat, just munch these dried beauties,am sure they are the prefect treat for your sweet tooth since they are sweet and low in fat.

I have prepared a homemade dried figs puree with some leftover dried figs, which i used in this cake along with banana and walnuts.Since my theme of this week's blogging marathon is eggless cakes, i baked this cake few days back for this theme,we enjoyed thoroughly this healthy and very nutty super moist cake. Banana puree and dried figs puree both works wonder together and we loved this cake when its was still warm. Walnut brings the nuttiess to this cake, obviously this cake is an incredible snack time cake. If you have some leftover dried figs, do give a try to this fantastic cake since this cake is butterless,eggless and sugarless as i used honey instead of sugar.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#33.Sending this cake to my event  Healthy Diet - Fat Free Recipes guest host by Dhanish.Sending to Srivalli's Cake Mela.
