Actually my whole family is sweet tooth and also having great tendency to get fat too easily😭 , so to avoid extra calories in our diet we have to make a reasonable distance with sugary and fatty stuffs😰. 
But this is also like a boon too me, so that I can experiment with healthy stuffs and turn them to interesting healthy cum yummy dishes. I made this on the occasion of makar sankranti that's why added sesame seeds to it and it was total worth , just created an awesome combination of rustic memories in a new look.

Spices added in this cake,  boosted its flavor to another level. You can say it a perfect combo for your cup of tea. A happy dessert to health conscious fellows.
Step wise recipe is given below, hope you will enjoy this tasty, yummy and healthy treat. sure give it a try , you will never regret.


Serves: 5-6
Time: 1: 15 hrs


1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour/ all purpose flour 
2 big bananas, ripe
1/2 cup jaggery, grated
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup thick yogurt( curd)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder 
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds ( black and white)
1 inch ginger, grated
1 tsp vanilla essence 
10-12 walnuts, roughly chopped 


First of all grease a loaf pan and dust it with some flour, keep it aside.

Mix well  flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder, walnuts and salt together, keep it aside for later use.

Now mash bananas with a fork till they become a lump less puree. Add grated jaggery , vanilla essence and curd in it and mix well till jaggery gets dissolve. Now add grated ginger and oil , again mix well. 

Add flour mixture and fold it to make a lump less smooth batter. Finally add sesame seeds and fold in. Pour in greased loaf pan. Sprinkle some sesame seeds all over the batter.

 Bake in a preheated oven at 180degree C for 40 - 50 mins, or till tooth pick inserted in it comes out clean. Mine took 50 mins, so keep an eye on it after 45 mins as different oven take different time. Time also depends on baking pans, size and shape.
Let it cool for 5 mins then invert on a wire rack.

 Let it cool completely before slicing, to get neat slices.

Your super yummy and healthy cake slices are ready to go with your cup of tea.
Enjoy these guilt free scrumptious sweet treat any time. It's good for kids tiffin and mid meal hunger sprang.

You can use any spices and any dry fruits of your choice. But surely try this combo too as ginger , sesame seeds and cinnamon let this cake to another level.
You can increase or decrease the quantity of jaggery as per your taste and sweetness of bananas, but this one is for perfect sweetness😊.
You can also use any shape of baking pan, but then baking time may change, so be cautious while baking and keep checking in between.

Hope you all will definitely try this guilt free yummy loaf and please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
