Healthy banana cake – recommended

So happy that I came up with this recipe using wholegrain flour replacing parts of normal flour..
I had tasted a wholegrain banana cake before, they called it banana bread, I guessed is bcoz of the texture… which am not a fan of it…
I would have omit the sugar if am not aiming to whisk the eggs to a ribbon stage. So I used 1/4 of the sugar in a usual recipe…
I really didn’t pin on much hope that it turns out awesomely good.. at least edible I hope .. the kids will eat it…
BUT to my surprise…
the taste n texture is awesome.. not too heavy, soft and spongy just like my other banana cake that I highly raved.
