Moist Carrot Banana Bread Recipe

You all know my love for simple cakes and bread. This is my latest favourite. It is so simple to make and has mashed up bananas and carrots in them. They are super healthy and a slice of this bread with a cup of tea or milk is perfect. 

Similar Recipes,

This bread is a no fail recipe, the end result is so moist and light and fluffy. it has the perfect texture of the bread and it pretty easy to make. The orginal recipe uses all all purpose flour, but i used half plain flour and half whole wheat which gave me the perfect textured bread..

I sliced this loaf as soon as they came out of the oven using a bread knife and the slices were very nice. I used flax seeds in this to make it more healthy but you can use any chopped nuts in this as well, or simply skip the nuts part.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

  3. Hi Aarthi. Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe. I am pretty new to baking and the way to explain the procedure, along with pictures, it has made your blog my baking guide.

    About this recipe, you might not believe but I saw your feed around 8pm and I was like 'I have to try it today' and I am glad I did. It turned out awesome.
    Took 40 mins to bake but that's because I used small cup, around 90/100 gms.

    Thanks, keep posting yummy stuff :)

    can we whisk the ggs along with banana/oil with sugar using a beater? had an experience of having bad smell when eggs were not beaten well. OR just a simple stir as you have done is enough (I can see you have stated "mix well" but "How" well, until frothy?
    Please advise

  5. Healthy Cake.... Any other replacement for Egg in order have veg cake kindly advise ... Thanks a lot

  6. is baking soda and baking powder the same? cos in our shop we get baking powder and soda bi-carb differently

  7. @Laviena DSouzabaking soda and baking powder is diff. Baking soda is also known as cooking soda or soda bi carb

  8. @Pinky Prajithyou can add 1/2 cup of thick yogurt instead of eggs, but i have never tried it

  9. @Supraja Muralidharanno need to get the eggs till frothy. Just giving a good mix till it is mixed well is enough. you can use beater and mix till it is combined.

  10. @Anonymousinstead of grated carrots you can add 1 cup of squash no need to change the recipe

  11. Hi Aarti, r u using a microwave or OTG for this & all recipes? as the baking time varies. Also m using OTG, do silicon tray works in OTG or I've to use a similar one shown above?

  13. Hi Aarthi
    Banana mentioned in this recipe is it robusta or nendran?

  15. Hi can I omit the flex seed n steam this cake? If yes how long? Thanks
