Banana Cake is one of the best things to munch on while having your evening tea. Its light, moist, soft, fruity and nutty. Whenever I visit a bakery and see slices of banana cake on the display I become really very happy. I won’t leave the bakery without buying it because for me it gives a very comforting taste and I end up smiling after I have the first bite. That’s how obsessed I am with banana cake. So once I started baking, this was one of the first cake I wanted to bake and guess what I smiled when I took the first bite of the one I baked because I got to recreate that very same taste that I craved for. And hence, it was one of the best baking experience I had. If you are as obsessed for banana cake as me or if you’d like to make one, here’s an easy recipe for you.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 35 mins
- Flour: 225 g
- Butter: 125 g
- Eggs: 2 nos
- Powdered Sugar: 200 g
- Baking Powder: 1/2 tsp
- Soda Bicarb: 1 tsp
- Riped Banana: 3 nos, mashed
- Walnut: 50 g, chopped
- Vanilla Essence: 1 tsp
- Milk (if required)
- Sieve flour, baking powder and soda bicarb in a plate. Whip together butter and powdered sugar until its light and fluffy in a mixing bowl.
- Beat 2 eggs separately in a small bowl and add it gradually to the whipped butter and sugar mixture, mixing well while adding.
- Add one tbsp of flour into the mashed banana and mix well. Once done add the mash into the mixture and stir till its well combined.
- Fold in the flour to the mixture and add the chopped walnuts.
- Grease a cake tin or loaf tin with butter or line it with baking paper. Pour the mixture into the tin (If you are using a loaf tin, pour only half or 2/3rd of the tin. The mixture is going to rise and if poured too much, the cake might be undercooked in the middle).
- Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree C and bake for 35 mins. Once done, allow the cake to cool down before taking it out of the mould.
