Banana Walnut Cake

This is one of the cakes I volunteered to demonstrate at the WEC interest group gathering's baking session I shared in my earlier post.

Here, I would like to share the recipe with you because it is so delicious most of the members gave it their thumbs up. The cake texture is soft and moist. Once you have a first bite you will taste the full fragrance of banana.



~ 300 g plain flour

~ 2 teaspoon baking powder

~ 2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

~ 1/2 teaspoon salt

~ 200 g sugar

~ 240 g unsalted butter

~ 4 big eggs - beaten

~4 very ripe bananas (about 375 g) mashed

~ 5 tablespoon milk

~ 1 teaspoon vanilla essence/1/2 teaspoon banana essence

~ chopped walnut (roasted)


~1) Sift flour , baking powder, salt and soda into a medium bowl.

~2) Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy white.

~3) Add beaten eggs a little at a time, beat well after each addition.
