      Thank you Anshu! Although I never tried making banana bread without using egg, I have heard using1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce with 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder can be used in place of egg in the recipe.Hope that works:)

  17. I have never tried banana loaf but I LOVE banana cake. I love it more than carrot/vanilla/butterscotch or any other flavor of cake. The ingredients to both seem similar, do they taste the same?

    1. InspiresN says:

      Hi Parvathy, I think they must be the same. Around here, I have just heard it being called as banana bread/loaf. I love the flavor also very much .Thank you so much for your comments and stopping by!
