Kerala Banana – Chocolate chip Cake


All purpose flour – 2 cups

Quick cooking white oats – 1 cup

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Baking soda – 11/2 tsp

Margarine – 1 cup ( I used Crisco shortening)

Granulated sugar – 11/4 – 11/2 cups

Eggs – 2, large; at room temperature

Thick curd – 1/2 cup

Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Kerala Banana / Ethapazham- 3 big

Milk chocolate chips – 1 cup, coarsely chopped


Steam cook the kerala bananas & mash them well with your potato masher. Let cool completely.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 10″ round cake tin & keep aside.

Sift together the flour, oats, baking soda & salt.

Beat together the margarine & sugar till soft & fluffy. Add the eggs one by one & beat well after each addition. Add curd, vanilla essence & the mashed banana in the same order & beat well after each addition.

Now add the sifted flour & mix gently till combined with the wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips. The mixture will not be loose like the ordinary cake batter.

Transfer the mixture to the greased cake tin & bake at 180C in the oven for 35 minutes.
