Eggless Banana Coconut Cream Loaf

in Baking, bread, Desserts

Woke up one fine morning and it was drizzling. Suddenly, all I was craving for at that exact moment was a slice of baked goods with my daily morning tea. So, I did what any sane baker would do — I begin lining up all the ingredients in order to satisfy a raging craving.

Everything was falling into place, until I realized there weren’t any eggs!

What to do? Baking has to happen, no matter any obstacles that may come your way. But let’s face it. In no way I was ready to make a dash into the grocery store just for an egg!

Not when it was still drizzling out there.

Can you sense I’m not an umbrella girl too? Gah. Excuses. First, blame it on the drizzle and now, umbrella? Put down the umbrella and your car keys. March into the kitchen and bake some magic.

It’ll happen, even without an egg!

Ingredients:

  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1/2 cup thick coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and brush on some coconut oil to act as adhesive. Set pan aside.
  2. In a huge bowl, whisk mashed bananas, freshly grated coconut, thick coconut milk, vanilla extract, coconut oil and sugar until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift all the dry ingredients (whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder and soda).
  4. Combine sifted dry ingredients into wet ingredients. With a large wooden spoon, stir the batter until just combined. Do not over-mix.
  5. Pour wet batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes.
  6. Remove loaf from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before removing it from the loaf pan. Cool loaf on a cooling rack completely before digging in.

Hope your Friday is off to a great start with plenty of sunshine. And if it’s going to rain soon, don’t worry about not having eggs. Just make sure you’ve stocked up on the rest of ingredients.

Including tea.

What’s your favorite way of enjoying a rainy day?

No sunshine here but we have snow. Yep, winter is coming. Lovely egg free loaf Kiran. I love coconut so this appeals to me on levels, but I may wait until I have no eggs to make it :)
Meanwhile, on my snowy day, I will make brownies for the kids.
Have a great weekend!

These famous moments when we realize we don’t have eggs to bake… I would just go to my mother in law and get “borrow” some eggs, that’s one advantage of living in a Indian family compound. You on the other hand surprised us with an egg less version and I am definitely amazed Kiran.

Isn’t vegan dessert amazing without the use of eggs? Banana is a great egg-replacer! Looks so yummy with the coconut milk & grated coconut. It hasn’t been rainy here in Buenos Aires since our first week – usually on a rainy day I would make a vegan Japanese kare (curry). I hope you have a great week, Kiran!
