Eggless Dense Moist Banana Flax Seed Cake

Eggless_Moist_Banana_Flax_Seed_Cake_1 After starting this blog I learned so many healthy food items from my fellow bloggers. One among them is flax seed (also known as linseed). Through this blog, I earned a set of good hearted friends in the form of readers and bloggers in different age groups. I believe friendship has no age bar.

Recently I bought a flax seed packet. I got only the black variety and I used it in banana cake. The cake turned out so moist and tasty with black flax seeds. Due to its nice taste, I baked it again after two days.

The first time I baked it in cake mode in my microwave cum oven (square shape). The second time I baked it in convection mode at 180 degree Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes (ring shape). In both methods, cake came out well. The cake is dense, moist due to banana and flax seed used in this cake.

Banana is known as Vazhai Pazham in Tamil.
