Banana and carrot Cake Eggless and Egg less Chicken Schnitzels

I have had two days off in a row this week. As No 2 son is not the greatest eater in the world I have been tempting his appetite with things I know he likes. His egg allergy means he misses out on a lot of things like cake. Yet you can make cake without eggs and they are good. Here's my latest attempt inspired by several recipes so I am not giving one source in particular.

Egg Less Banana and Carrot Cake

2 overripe bananas
1 large carrot - cut into chunks
200mls milk
5 teaspoons baking powder (use the recommended amount for that amount of flour of your favorite brand I think it varies depending on brand)
1 teaspoon bi-carb (baking)soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice or cinnamon
125 grams melted butter
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
2 1/2 cups plain flour (I used wholemeal but you could use any)

Place carrot, banana and milk in food processor and blitz until carrot is finely chopped.
Add all the other ingredients and process until smooth and lightened in colour.
Pour into lined 15cm x 30 cm tray and bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees C or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
Cool in tin for 5 minutes and then remove onto airing tray.

Egg less Chicken Schnitzels.

4 Chicken thigh fillets
1 cup cornflake crumbs
1/2 cup favorite dukkah
milk or cream about 1 cup

Combine the crumbs and dukkah, toss the chicken fillets in the mix.
Dip in the milk and return to the crumb mix. Repeat until well coated I did 3 coats.
Spray with olive oil and bake on a lined tray in 180 degree oven for around 45 minutes.
Serve with mashed potato and peas or salad
I had mine with salad No 2 son just had peas. I was going to take a wonderful photo and show you but I was really hungry and so you just got a photo of the leftovers.

Vegan baking's the best! It's amazing how vegan cakes and cookies tend to stay moister for so much longer. I'm slowly converting the boyfriend's workmakes by sending delicious treats.
