Servings 1 Loaf


  • 1/3 cup Butter unsalted, melted
  • 1/2 cup Jaggery Powder check notes for substitute
  • 2 Bananas medium, over-ripe
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk check description below if you want to make buttermilk from scratch
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder unsweetened
  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips plus optionally, 2 Tbsp extra for sprinkling on top of cake batter


  • (Optional) If you don't have buttermilk, then prepare buttermilk by adding 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice and add enough milk to fill 1/2 cup in the measuring bowl (approx 1/2 cup milk). Mix it and keep it aside, buttermilk is ready.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees Celsius). Meanwhile, mash the bananas in a bowl until smooth.
  • Add the melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla extract and jaggery powder to the mashed bananas and mix it thoroughly.
  • Using a sieve, sift whole wheat flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt, over the wet ingredients mixture.
  • Gently fold dry ingredients with the wet ingredients mixture using a spatula. Do not over-mix at this stage. Finally add the half cup of chocolate chips, and fold them to the cake batter.
  • Grease a standard loaf pan (8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches) with some oil (or butter) and dust with whole wheat flour. Pour batter into greased and dusted loaf pan.
  • Optionally, sprinkle the extra 2 tablespoon of chocolate chips on top (Check ** Notes down below for a pro tip).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for around 55-60 minutes or till the cake is done (when the inserted toothpick comes out clean).
  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool before slicing and serving. You can store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container and use within a week.



  • Do not over-mix once dry ingredients are added.
  • If you don't have jaggery powder, feel free to substitute it with organic coconut palm sugar.
  • ** Use a parchment paper to line the cake pan, if you don't want to mess out the chocolate chips on top, while removing the cake from the cake tin.
