Vegan Banana Cornmeal Cake with Chocolate chips

My baking experiments with palm jaggery syrup is just continuing and every time i bake with them, my bakes comes out extremely fabulous,obviously i opted again this method of using palm jaggery in this banana cornmeal cake instead of white sugar.Banana and palm jaggery syrup compliments very well in cake, and this cornmeal cake or bread watever you would like to call came out simply moist and delicious. As usual i have added some chocolate chips to attract my kids, yes chocolates is our weakness whenever i try something new i'll add definitely some chocolate to attract everyone.Most of my baking trials end up always with chocolates in it.

Vegan Banana Cornmeal Cake with chocolate chips, palm jaggery syrup

Coming to this cake, i simply prepared it with fine quality of cornmeal along with wheat flour, also skipped butter. This vegan cake goes for simple preparation, you doesnt need any fancy gadgets to prepare the batter, just a whisker is enough to take care of the preparation. One more beautiful vegan cake am adding into my Vegan Cakes Galore. If you dont have palm jaggery or cornmeal, just replace them simply with jaggery syrup and fine semolina aka fine rava. I used banana puree as egg replacer here, you can also replace it very well with apple sauce too. Just play with the ingredients, bake this cake and enjoy the goodness of banana and palm jaggery.This vegan cake goes to this week's blogging marathon,as i picked Cakes with different egg substitutes as this week' theme.Sending this post to my own event CWS-Corn guest hosted by Anitha.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.
