Banana cake with chia seeds & oats!

I haven't been baking for a while ever since my convection oven died on me. Been hearing wonderful stuff about the amazing air-fryer and we finally got one to replace the oven. With that, I've been curating recipes and trying them out. This is my second experiment with the air-fryer in terms of baking and it's definitely a success! It's easy and pretty much fail-proof. No need for mixer or anything, just your usual crockery and an oven/airfryer.

Banana cake with chia seeds and oats is a healthy bake and it won't be that sinful when you reach out for a second slice :D

Banana Cake with Chia Seeds and Oats

Ingredients:
3 big mashed bananas
1 egg
120g melted butter
180ml milk, room tempature (I used 200ml because I don't want a dry cake)
1.5 cups (188g) cups plain flour (You can replace it with wholemeal flour if you want it to be healthier)
150g caster sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (45g) rolled oats (as much as you like)
1/8 cup (20g) chia seeds (as much as you like)


Mash the bananas!


Add milk, egg, melted butter, to the mashed banana. Whisk the mixture until it's well-combined. 


In another bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, chia seeds, oats together.


Add the bowl of wet mixture into the dry one.


Use a wooden spoon and mix them together till the flour is nicely fused into the entire combination.


Pour the mixture into the baking tin! Do put a layer of non-stick baking paper or grease your tin to prevent sticking later on.



Bake it at 170 degrees for about 50 minutes. Use a skewer and poke into the cake. If it comes out clean, it's properly baked!


Let it cool for about 10 minutes.


A delicious and healthy cake awaits!

Method:
1. Mash the bananas in a bowl.
2. Add egg, milk and melted butter into the bowl of mashed bananas. Mix with a whisk until it's well-combined.
3. In another bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats and chia seeds together. Mix them well.
4. Add the bowl of wet mixture into the dry mixture.
5. Use a wooden spoon to stir until the flour is fused nicely into the mixture. Do not over mix.
6. Put a layer of non-stick baking paper or grease the baking tin with a layer of oil. Pour the batter in.
7. Bake at 170 degrees Celcius for 50 minutes. Use a skewer and poke the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is properly baked.
8. Cool the cake for 10 minutes.

My mom who doesn't have a lot of faith in my cake-baking skills (as compared to cookies) loved the banana cake. Even my dad who's not a cake lover approves of this. So glad that it was successful! To more #aaronivykitchenadventure! :D
