Butterscotch Banana Cake on plateThis cake tastes so good, you'll be surprised at how easy it is to make. The main cake part is made of aquafaba, the liquid you find in a can of canned chickpeas. If you don't have any, use about 5 egg whites. Sometimes I use a mixture of both. Since the cake is so light and fluffy, the butterscotch chips mix with the banana and sink to the bottom, making a luxurious sticky butterscotch sauce to use as topping. Don't worry, it ribbons itself in the middle of the cake, too. What a delight!

I did not use any added butters or oils to this cake because the banana and the butterscotch added all the creaminess necessary.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • liquid from 1 can of chickpeas (or 5 egg whites)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place the aquafaba in a large bowl and add the salt. Beat on low and gradually increase speed. As it's puffing a bit, add the cream of tartar and sugar, while beating.

You are so sweet! I'm happy I'm easy to follow along! I had trouble figuring out cooking when I was in college and always wished there were more step-by-step photos back then, so that's why I'm super into it now :D
