Oma's easy banana bread recipe is so utterly simple to make! Since it's vegan, everything is just stirred together and it tastes wunderbar! No folding, or creaming, or whipping. Just use a wooden spoon and mix. Bake. Enjoy!
A cake made in a regular cake form is just a cake. But make it in a bundt form and WOW!
A bundt cake often doesn't even need icing to look amazing. Sometimes just a sprinkle of powdered sugar over the top is all that's needed.
Fill the center with some fresh berries. Dessert is done!
This one from Wilton is non-stick which makes removing the cake a breeze. Cakes bake evenly and release perfectly.

Even the simplest of cake batters turn into a centrepiece when displayed on your Kaffeeklatsch table when baked in a bundt pan. Try it. You'll like it!
I've needed to include vegan recipes in my recipe box. With one of my grandkids eating this lifestyle, I need to be able to make foods that everyone can enjoy when the family gets together. That was the basis for creating this recipe. I needed something easy and quick. I needed something vegan and delicious. I needed something to use the over-ripe bananas I had. I NEEDED an EASY banana bread recipe!
Oma Says, PLEASE NOTE:
The originally posted recipe had a typo in the ingredient list. I've edited it, so if you've printed it out earlier you'll see that the baking powder was omitted and baking soda was listed twice. Below, and in the new print version, that has been corrected. My apologies if you've been affected by this.
Oma's Easy Banana Bread Recipe❤️
2 cups all-purpose flour
1½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 ripe bananas
¼ cup light tasting olive oil or other vegetable oil
1 cups granulated sugar
¼ cup extra-strong coffee (or water)
2 tsp rum or 1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup broken walnut pieces (optional)
1 tsp powdered sugar for sprinkling on top of finished cake
Preheat oven to 350°F
Prepare your Bundt pan by spraying with a vegetable spray
Into a small bowl, sift together the first four dry ingredients.
Into a large bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in the oil, sugar, coffee and vanilla extract until well mixed. Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in the walnuts.
Spoon batter into prepared Bundt pan and smooth the top.
Bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack. Let cool completely.
Put 1 tsp of powdered sugar into a small sieve and dust over the top of the cake.
Serves 8 - 10
Make sure to check with a wooden toothpick to see if the cake if done. If there is any moist cake stuck to the toothpick, leave the cake in for about another 5 minutes. Use a new wooden toothpick to check again. It should come out clean. If not, add another 5 minutes.
I made this banana bread as the birthday cake for my grandson. Everyone enjoyed it. It was so wonderfully moist and nutty!
I was really amazed how easy and quick this banana cake was to make. Even though I normally make banana bread in a loaf pan, using a bundt form made this one look special. All it needed was a sprinkle of powdered sugar over the top.
I had run out of strawberries, but adding them to the center 'bundt' hole would have looked amazing! Next time!
I've been trying out various vegan recipes after my first attempt at this Simple Vegan Chocolate Cake turned out to be a winner. It's texture and flavor are similar to the chocolate portion of my German marble cake. In fact, I used that same recipe and turned them into mini-muffins that tasted almost like brownies!
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
