Banana Walnut Loaf Cake

Shankar turned an year older last sunday &amp since it was a holiday; I wanted to bake him a cake with him . But our plans changed the last minute, & we ended up spending the entire day outdoors .. I finally found the time to bake a cake this morning ..  .. A few months ago, I brought a small Banana cake loaf from the local bakery & Shankar loved it as it wasn't overy sweet .. Although terribly late, Banana Walnut Loaf Cake was what I baked for the Birthday Boy ..

Banana Walnut Loaf Cake

I got the recipe from here & it definitely is for keeps.

You Will Need:

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter - softened
  • 1 1/3 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Cocoa powder
  • 80g chopped walnuts
  • 3 large ripe bananas - mashed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tso Bicarbonate of Soda
How To:
  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • In a large bowl, put the butter, sugar & eggs. beat well with a hand blender. Add mashed bananas to the mixture & give it a good mix
  • In another bowl, sift the flour, Soda, cinnamon powder, cocoa powder.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Stir in yogurt & walnuts.
  • Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan & spoon the mixture & level the surface. Bake for the hour.
  • Let it cool on a rack. Unmould & cut into slices
Serve warm with some Coffee or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream by the side & serve as a dessert .. Enjoi !!

Notes:
  • The original recipe calls for chocolate chips, I replaced it with walnute instead.
  • I also reduced the amount of cocoa powder from 1 tbsp to 1 tsp. We loved the very slight hint of  chocolate
