Eggless Banana Cake : Kadali Apupaka
Banana is one of the most nutritious fruits and the best part is it liked by most kids. I always like to use banana in different ways for my daughter and those recipes have been loved by all of you. You might remember the banana nut bread and atta banana walnut bread. Recently I came across another recipe of eggless banana cake by a dear friend which is eggless and uses banana powder. It is such a great recipe that I just had to share it with you all.
