Banana-Walnut Cake

My Hubby never eats cake,that's the reason I stopped baking cakes at home. To my surprise one day he said he used to go to Starbucks near his office and became a great fan of Chai-latte & Banana-Walnut cake. grrrrrrrrrrr! The very next day I baked this cake and thereafter it became our favourite evening snack. :)

Walnut(broken into small pieces)-1/2cup
All purpose flour-11/4cups
Baking Powder-1/2teaspoon
Baking Soda-1/2teaspoon
Cinnamon powder-1/4teaspoon
Pure Vanilla extract-1/4teaspoon

In Room Temperature


Sieve the flour with Baking powder-baking soda-cinnamon powder twice and keep aside.
Separate the egg whites and yolks.
Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolks-vanilla and beat well.
Then add the flour and milk alternatively, mix well.
Mash the bananas, fold it with the flour mixture.
Beat the egg whites and fold it with the cake mixture.
Finally add in the walnut pieces,mix well.
Pour it in a buttered baking dish and bake it for 45 to 50 minutes in a 350F preheated oven.

Cool the cake for 2 hours..slice it and enjoy with tea!
