Eggless banana muesli cake (A Healthy version)

healthy eggless cake I actually did not know how to name the cake. Baking a cake with with scratch has become a regular thing. And if I have over riped banana, it sure goes into my cake. And I don't have eggs and butter most of the times. So its just with what is available with me.
Nowadays, my son has started throwing tantrums while eating. I try to feed him so many varieties, try to distract him with cartoons, music, nothing seems to work, but he refuses everything without even tasting it. I really get stressed out sometimes.
I am sure this is not new to most of the mothers. I have heard most of them complaining. And few of my friends even gave me some tips and tricks to overcome this problem. Its really tough to make kids eat.
Actually the thing is, I got a packet of muesli hoping he likes it for his breakfast, but no, he did not. So, that too was thrown into my cake, convincing myself atleast he will eat the cake!!! Here's the recipe I used.

Ingredients-
Plain flour- 1 1/2 cup
Wheat flour-1/2 cup
Muesli- 1/2 cup
Light brown sugar- 1/2 cup
Vegetable oil- 1/3 cup
Milk- 1cup
Bananas- 1 mashed
Cocoa powder- 2tbspn
Baking powder - 1tsp
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Icing sugar

Method
Mix together all the dry ingredients. Then add milk and oil. Mix well so that no lumps are formed. Add the bananas. Its better to add muesli in the end (just fold in the batter) so that the grains remain intact.
Pour in the cake pan. Bake at 180c for 30 minutes in a preheated oven.
Sprinkle icing sugar on the top of the cake.
The cake is not spongy , it is soft and chewy.Tasted good!!

Anything Eggless is always nice since I have turned vegan(partial and would like to avoid eggs). The cake looks yummy and having muesli increases the fibre content.Nice idea
