Banana Loaf Cake

 Eating healthy breakfast is a good way to kick start your day! Slices of banana loaf cake with a cup of coffee is a good choice for breakfast. You can prepare the banana cake previous day, so next day morning will be hassle free! You can sleep little extra or do little more exercise or read detailed news instead of only headlines. You can also utilize that extra time in your own way. Isn't it a great idea? Banana Loaf Cake requires simple ingredients which are readily available at your pantry. Most of the time we are unable to finish the last one or two banana from the lot and they are overripe. Hence, we avoid eating them and they go to the waste basket. Now you can use the overripe leftover bananas and make a healthy banana loaf cake. You can make it more healthy by choosing wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.

Banana Loaf Cake

Flour - 2 cups
Egg - 1 
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Curd - 2 tablespoon
Banana - 1, large size (Over ripen)
Baking Powder - 2 teaspoon
Cinnamon Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Cooking Butter - 3/4 cup


Line a loaf tin (7.5 inch) with butter paper. Make the puree of over ripen banana. Now sieve flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt together and keep aside. Take melted butter in a big bowl and cream it with sugar. Next add beaten egg and beaten curd one after another. Beat them carefully and add pureed banana. Now fold the sifted flour mixture into the wet mixture. After folding transfer the mixture into the lined pan. Preheat oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes and bake it for 25 minutes to 30 minutes.

Equation of Making Healthy & Happy Home

"Healthy Mind Resides in a Healthy Body"

I believe, this age-old proverb is true and evident in everybody's life. This proverb fits perfectly especially for children. I can understand this well, since our daughter (Aahana) came to our life. A child can make you happy & joyous. He/she can change your mood even takes away all your tensions. You can feel the livelihood around you. 

Our Daughter "Aahana" engaged in various activities

A lovely smile of your child really makes a great start of the day. After that, as a mother you run around the child and if you are tired a warm hug of the child makes you more energetic. These innocent kids can teach you very complex thing in simple way and they also teach to be cool on a more nervous moment. However, these innocent minds cannot hide the truth and they express all their emotions immediately, cannot act like adults. Hence whenever they are not keeping well, they are gloomy, sad and quiet. Then you really miss their mischievous smile and notorious activities. And you keep trying all possibilities to make your child smile or talk like chatter box which he/she was doing just sometime back. During this time, you miss all your child's activity and pray to the super power for your child's wellness. When your child is ill, no one is there to take away your worries and make you smile! It seems the world around is also sad, no excitement for the coming weekend. Now your only aim is to get well your child! 

Does any parent want their surrounding unhappy, lethargic or so dull??

I know the answer is "No".  Everyone wants to lead a happy and cheerful life which is possible when your child is happy and healthy.

Healthy Child = Happy Child

This simple equation makes a Happy Home.

Hence, upbringing of a child is very important in this context. Today's sedentary lifestyle has an adverse effect on child's health.  It is crucial to build their immunity at this early age, so that your child is strong enough to fight with all type of germs (bacteria, virus, etc.). Food plays an important role in growing immunity in your child. Try to include varieties of vegetables and fruits in your child's daily menu. Apart from these a balanced diet, which includes carbohydrates, protein and fat, is very helpful in the development of child's immunity. Most importantly Dabur Chyawanprash, which is an age-old formulation, has antioxidant properties from natural herbs like amla, giloy helps to build body's immune system and thereby, shields you & your child from daily infections.

A child is not only the strength and courage of your family, they are the backbone of our nation! So keep your child healthy & happy :))
