I found this off the web. Have no idea how it taste like. I hope to try it this week and will post the picture later.

Ingredients:
4 ripe bananas(mashed)
2 cups Self Raising Flour
100 g Margarine or Vegetable Shortening
1 tsp ground cinnamon powder
1 tsp ground nutmeg powder
2 tbsp strong Instant Coffee
70 g light brown sugar

Method:
1. in a large mixing bowl, add sifted flour, cinnamon, nutmeg.
2. Melt margarine and mix with coffee powder and sugar.
3. Add margarine mix to flour and fold in slowly.
3. Add bananas last and mix.
4. Line a bake tin with greased paper. And pour cake mix into it.
5. Bake in a preheated oven of 180 C for 30 mins.
6. Remove from pan, cool completely before slicing.

Gina,
I have made this cake, very nice! Can't tell it's different from the one with egg.
I used veg shortening. I like it.

But a few things...
1. coffee powder can't be dissolved in oil...
2. my batter was too dry, I got to add some milk.

This cake is very moist, I'll make it often coffee

papercook, thanks for the suggestion!

beesidhu, my coffee powder just clogged even in the melted (hot) shortening. Ended up I got to discard it and added coffee liquueur (I was in shock; just grabbed anything handy)
I think my batter was rather dry as I added cornstarch (as we discussed in your HP flour thread)... if your batter needs extra liquid, surely you can dissolve the coffee powder in milk (warm up first; easier to dissolve).
I melt my shortening in double-broiler, bet you can do in microwave. Razz

alyssa, thanks for your kind words Razz Mine now is in the freeze... someday morning when I defroze a slice for breakfast will snap-snap it first.

Ran out of eggs but feel like baking so tried this just now and must say...I love it!
Used 6 bananas instead-hee!hee!greedy me!Margarine plus Nescafe Gold.Also increased the amt of margarine a little as I prefer a moist cake.
Verdict=soft,moist,yummy!!The aroma while it's baking tempted me so much that I couldn't wait to have it later :lol: ate 3 slices!
Btw my coffee didn't dissolved completely too but had no problem with it as it turned out & tasted great.

Yes, it will be suitable for vegetarians if you do not add milk.

From the comments above, I gather that it's a bit dry and they added milk. Like ER, you can dd more bananas and margarine (instead of milk) so that it wouldn't be too dry.

For vegetarians:

In place of milk you can also use soy milk , rice milk , almond milk or diluted peanut butter.
