Banana walnut cake

Try the cake without the nuts for people with nuts allergy

Recipe by Priya Sriram of Edmonton, CA

Yummy banana walnut cake !! For kids with nut allergy try without the nuts or for variation try the cake with the nuts of your choice.

Ingredients non vegetarian 8 servings

    • 2 cups white flour
    • 11/2 cups sugar
    • 1 cup butter
    • 1/2 spoon salt
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
    • 3 tbsp sour cream
    • 2 eggs
    • 4 small bananas or 6 large
    • 1/2 cup walnuts



    1. Mix all the  ingredients except walnut and the banana and make a batter, make sure there are no lumps in the batter.
    2. In a separate bowl blend the bananas
    3. Add the blended bananas to the batter
    4. Finally add the walnuts
    5. Pour the batter in a nonstick baking tray sprinkle the walnuts on the top to get that toasted nut taste
    6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the cake for 1.30 hrs. The baking time may vary according to your oven. To make sure that the cake is fully cooked use a BBQ skewer or a tooth pick to poke the cake. If no batter sticks to the stick then the cake is fully cooked. Make sure to poke the middle and to reach all the way down to the bottom as the mid section tends to take longer to cook. I recommend checking within the first 45mts and then following the process every 20 minutes.
    7. If the Bananas are too sweet reduce the sugar to 1 cup from 11/2 cups.
    8. Let the cake cool for 20 minutes and take it off the baking tray
    9. For added taste the cake can be served with whipped cream
    10. For kids with Nut allergy you can try the same cake without the walnut.

    Recipe sounds great to me, hence, I have book marked it to try my hand at it. @ Eskitha, please, do try using 170-175gms of hung yoghurt in place of 2 big Eggs in the recipe. Do not forget to 'pulse/blend the hung yoghurt' in a mixer/blender ' for a few seconds', in order to give it a homogenous texture, and this has to be done only when you are ready to use it in the recipe.
