Eggless Nutella Cake

When I noticed the container of left-over Nutella kept unused for few weeks, I badly wanted to use it up in one shot and hence I decided to bake a chocolate cake using Nutella. Being a vegetarian I prefer to use bananas as the substitute for eggs, and I baked a chocolate cake using Nutella & bananas.  Although some do not like the idea of combining chocolate & banana, it worked wonders for me. I was delighted with the beautiful outcome of luscious cake with moist texture & tender crumbs.


Here is the recipe for an eggless chocolate cake that combines the sweetness of banana with bitter cocoa to make it even more chocolaty:


Time Taken: 50 min


Dry ingredients:

  1. Whole wheat flour – 1 cup (200 g)
  2. Cocoa powder – ½ cup ( 100 g)
  3. Baking Powder – 1 tsp
  4. Baking soda – ½ tsp
  5. Salt – ¼ tsp

Wet ingredients:

  1. Ripe banana – 3 Nos.
  2. Un-refined caster sugar – 1 cup
  3. Nutella – ½ cup
  4. Any neutral oil – ½ cup
  5. Lukewarm water – ½ cup

For garnishing: (optional)

  2. Fresh cherries

Method :

Step 1 : Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well.


Step 2: Preparing cake batter

  • Sprinkle cucumber seeds over the batter.
  • Bake for 40 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  • Serve banana flavored chocolate cake.
