Eggless banana bread recipe video – Delicious, moist and soft eggless banana bread that is vegan too. I do not prefer eggless bakes since many of them do not yield the same texture as the ones with eggs. But each time I share a baking recipe with eggs, I do get lot of requests for eggless version too. Since the eggless ones need a a lot of trials and experimentation I do not get to share them often here.
I had tried many eggless banana bread recipes and finally loved this one from Madhu’s blog.
This recipe will yield you moist, delicious & healthy banana bread.
