Low Calorie Banana Cake

March 30 , 2015 by: Drishty Appetizers and Snacks, Baked Goods, Desserts


It’s almost holiday time, and I still have quite a few things I need to get rid of from my pantry. So this morning I noticed a few bananas getting pretty ripe and I immediately thought of making some banana cake. Might as well, I had a little bit of Vanilla cake mix left in my pantry too.

I have provided below a healthier version of recipe, ofcourse, if you are feeling a bit naughty and want to add a few extras like nuts, chocolate chips, dessicated coconut etc. I added all those 🙂

Preparations for this cake takes no more than 20 minutes, another 40 mintes in the oven and you are ready to dig into this scrumptious cake!



2 Ripe Bananas Mashed – 210 Calories

1 Tablespoon unsweetened applesauce – 6 Calories

1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract – 37 Calories

3 1/2 Tablespoons of stevia sugar – 87.5 Calories

1 Teaspoon baking powder – 2 Calories

1 Teaspoon baking soda – 0 Calories

2 Tablespoons of skimmed milk – 10 Calories

3/4 Cup of Vanilla cake mix – 170 Calories

1 Large egg – 74 Calories

(you can substitute egg for 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce)

Total Calories: 600, Calories per slice 50


Beat all the ingredients well and pour the mix in a small greased pan. Bake in a pre-heated oven of 190 C for 35-40 minutes or until done. Check if the cake is done by sticking a knife in the cake and if it comes out clean it’s done.

Bonjour, my name is Drishty Ghadia. I was born and raised in India, where in a Vegetarian household I developed my love for cooking spicy food. Then later on moving to and spending 10+ years in the US, I found myself dumbstruck and in love with the high sugar, high fructose corn syrup, high cholesterol - yet oh so addictive food. I mean have you ever gone through an entire menu of The Cheese Cake Factory?

In the past few years I have jumped countries yet again and now I live in the land of Fish and Chips and Yorkshire Pudding - the lovely UK. I love to travel and I believe that you have to taste a culture to understand it. Italian, Spanish, Chinese, French, Swiss, German, Moroccan, Japanese, Malaysian, Sri Lankan, Indian, Peruvian, South African, Kenyan, Middle Eastern - you name it, I've eaten it and tried to make some vegetarian fusion version of it in my kitchen.

Food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. I will be recreating some original and some fusion recipes from my travels in my kitchen and will share them with you here. Hope you enjoy them!
